In order to evaluate the reliability of mini closed pressure vessel test (MCPVT), a round robin program among NRIFD, NKKK and Kayatech Co. Ltd. was conducted in Japan, using three typical organic peroxides. Standard test conditions was proposed and (dP / dt)max was adapted for the tests. The results imply that the same design of test device yields a good repeatability for three materials.
