New Provisional Method proposed for sorptive rate and capacity of bibulous paper products

Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

A proposal has been made for a new standard test method: "Sorptive rate and capacity of bibulous paper products using gravimetric principles (M/K Systems-type)."

The scope of the method is: This test method determines the liquid sorption of bibulous paper, paperboard, and paper products using gravimetric principles. This test method measures both the rate and capacity of liquid sorption through demand wettability or wicking. Liquid capacity is defined as the point in the analysis where the sorption rate falls below 5.0 mg in 5 seconds. Agreed intermediate points are measured during the analysis to determine rate.

A Standard-Specific Interest Group (SSIG) must be formed for this proposal. Any individuals who are interested in this Standard may join the SSIG to receive ballots when this method is ready for vote. If you would like to join the SSIG for this project, please notify the Standards Department at or by fax at +1-770-446-6947 no later than June 17, 2013.
