Maximum pressure for pressure connection G 1/8 and 1/8 NPT

Why will be the threads G 1/8 and 1/8 NPT offered for pressures only to a nominal pressure range of 400 bar? Where does digital pressure gauge come from?
Basically, the explanation is very simple: From a certain pressure limit, the thread flanks are no longer ?strong? enough to resist diaphragm seal of the applied pressure. If the pressure is too high, there is a threat of shearing for the thread. Incidentally, the pressure limits result from DIN EN 837-1.
Attention: The utmost pressure around which a thread can be used depends not only on the thread diameter, but additionally on the selected sealing type and the material of the counter-thread.
