FEA 603 – Filled aerosol packs – Guidelines to test long-term preservation and to measure the loss of weight

The mechanical resistance of the aerosol dispenser must not be impaired by the action of the substances contained in it or by external environment factors, even during prolonged storage.

Prior to introduction to the marketplace the integrity of the sealing of the valve to the container, the compatibility of the packaging components in the presence of the product and the quality of contents during storage of filled aerosol products must be assured by rigorous controls during formulation and manufacture. This may be achieved by undertaking storage tests to check the effect of time on both the formulation and packaging specification. In addition, these types of storage tests can be undertaken to monitor the performance of a product in manufacture.
