Wet pin adhesion of corrugated board by selective separation

A proposal has been submitted to create a new standard for wet pin adhesion of corrugated board by selective separation.

If you would like to participate in the review of this Standard Test Method, you must join the Standard-Specific Interest Group (SSIG) so that you will be included on the ballot. To join the SSIG for this standard, please contact the TAPPI Standards Department at standards@tappi.org no later than May 16, 2014.

The scope of this proposed new standard is: This method is used to measure the force required to separate the linerboard facings from the medium in corrugated board after the board has been immersed in water for a period of time.  It can be used to evaluate the water resistance properties or levels in water resistant adhesive. This procedure mirrors the process in T 821 "Pin adhesion of corrugated board by selective separation," with differences in how samples are prepared for testing and how results are interpreted.
