    Hello RAPS experts

    Could you please direct me to the correct standards or guidance documents regarding the testing for removal torque for screw neck glass vials with screw plastic caps?

    I am particularly interested in understanding the differences in torque removal specifications based on the glass's and the cap's neck size.

    Regards

    Anon,

    You might want to search through some of the standard store offerings https://store.accuristech.com/ or ANSI/ASTM.

    With or without a tool? Children, adults, people with disabilities? Need to break a seal before unscrewing? Pinch grip vs whole hand grip? Smooth or textured?

    There are basic grip strength numbers in HE75, but not as detailed as you're hoping for. There are basic testing considerations in IEC 62366-1, but not specific to types of products.
