This European Standard is applicable for internally coated cylindrical and conical aluminium tubes, mainly used for the packing of pharmaceutical, cosmetic, hygiene, food or other household products.
The internal coating is used as a barrier and should avoid any contact between aluminium and the product. This European Standard defines the sodium chloride method to detect the electrolyte conductivity as one criterion for the quality of the internal coating.
NOTE   The electrolyte conductivity of the internal coating is only one criterion for evaluation of the quality of an internal coating. It does not give any information on the quantity or size of any pores or uncoated areas, nor any hint on possible reactions between the aluminium tube and the product. The electrolyte conductivity is never used as the sole criterion for quality evaluation of the internal coating, but always with other parameters, e.g. film thickness, acetone and/or ammonia resistance and of course results of enhanced stability studies.

Le présent document spécifie une méthode de détermination de l’épaisseur du film de vernis appliqué à
l’intérieur des tubes en aluminium cylindriques ou coniques. Cette méthode est une méthode de référence.
Elle peut également servir de référence lors de l’étalonnage d’autres appareils électroniques appropriés pour
la détermination de l’épaisseur du revêtement, par exemple selon la méthode de mesurage de capacité par
courants de Foucault. Elle s’applique aux tubes en aluminium utilisés pour le conditionnement de produits
pharmaceutiques, produits cosmétiques, produits d’hygiène, ainsi que de produits alimentaires et d’autres
produits domestiques et industriels.
NOTE Même s’ils ne sont pas spécifiés dans la présente norme, d’autres appareils de mesure automatique de
