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

Why are the threads G 1/8 and 1/8 NPT offered for pressures and then a nominal pressure range of 400 bar? Where does this limit come from?
Basically, the explanation is simple: From a certain pressure limit, the thread flanks are no longer ?strong? enough to resist the force of the applied pressure. If Surging is too much, there is a risk of shearing for the thread. Incidentally, Mischievous come from DIN EN 837-1.
Attention: The utmost pressure around which a thread can be used depends not only on the thread diameter, but also on the selected sealing type and the material of the counter-thread.
