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 and then a nominal pressure selection of 400 bar? Where does this limit come from?
Basically, the explanation is simple: From the certain pressure limit, the thread flanks are no more ?strong? enough to resist Danger of the applied pressure. If the pressure is too high, there is a threat of shearing for the thread. Incidentally, the pressure limits come from DIN EN 837-1.
Convert : The maximum pressure around which a thread may be used depends not only on the thread diameter, but additionally on the selected sealing type and the material of the counter-thread.
