Special note:  Documents appearing in the TAPPI online version of the Standards and TIPs are updated once a month (usually around the 15th). So it is possible that there is a delay between the publication announcement and the posting online. If you are a subscriber to the online access to Standards and TIPs and you are in a hurry for new documents that have not yet been posted, you can send a request to standards@tappi.org

General Announcements
TAPPI has recently launched a revamped website. If you haven't seen it yet, now would be a good time to check it out! (www.tappi.org)

We are very excited to bring this new experience to you, so please feel free to send us feedback and tell us how you feel. We are aware that there will be some minor difficulties during this transition period, so please bear with us as you experience broken links or issues navigating the new site. 

 

Product & Product Quality Division committees are in need of new members to support the development and maintenance of standards we all use in the manufacture of the products we deliver to our customers.

These committees discuss and make decisions on critical issues that deal with standards which are currently being used by the pulp and paper industry, as well as those which are being developed for them. 
 
Below are the committees which are in need of your support:

Pulp and Chemical Properties Committee

Optical Properties Committee

Physical Properties Committee

Tissue Properties Subcommittee

Joining one or more of these groups gives you and your company the opportunity to participate in the discussion and development of the standards we use for evaluating the product and product quality. Without good pulp and paper industry standards to guide us, we will not be able to deliver what our customers require.  Therefore, please consider volunteering your company and your support for these committees. 

For all those members who are already involved in Standard Specific Interest Groups (SSIG), we ask you to make the next step in standard development and maintenance participation by joining a committee today.

Meetings are held twice a year to discuss ongoing committee work. The meetings can be attended in person or by phone conference. 
  
Please contact Steve Berg, P&PQ Division Chairman (sberg@thwingalbert.com) or Laurence Womack, Director of Standards and Awards (standards@tappi.org) for more information.

 

Getting started is easy. Do you have just a general idea for a standard, or are you farther along and have a substantial draft? If you just have a general idea for a standard or TIP, complete the New Idea Submission Form. TAPPI will review your idea and identify an appropriate committee or group to work on your suggestion. If you are further along, send an initial draft to standards@tappi.org. From there, the TAPPI Standards Manager will guide you through the appropriate process to finalize and approve the new document.
 
 
People
The Power and Recovery Subcommittee have proposed two new TIPs:

Sodium Sulfate (Sodium Thiosulfate) and Reduction Efficiency Measurement of Green Liquor in Chemical Recovery Processes -  this TIP will review available methods for measurement of sulfate and thiosulfate ions in green and white liquors for reduction efficiency calculation, addressing the latest measurement techniques and the potential economic returns of a good reduction efficiency in kraft mills

Recommended Practice for Refractory Selection and Installation in Recovery Boilers - this TIP will address practices to optimize refractory life including proper material selection, installation methods, curing time, and repair methods. 

If you are interested in being a part of the Working Group for these new TIPs, please contact standards@tappi.org by July 15, 2016.

 
SSIG Members Needed
All Standard-Specific Interest Groups (SSIG) require a minimum of 10 members in order to ballot and vote on a draft of a method.

T 602 cm-06 "Analysis of sulfuric acid" needs one more member to join the SSIG.

T 438 cm-06 "Zinc and cadmium in paper" requires three more SSIG members for ballot.

T 504 "Glue in paper (qualitative & quantitative determination)" (need two more members that are not of producer category)

If no progress is made on these ballots, then they might be considered for withdrawal at the next QSMC meeting. If you have an interest in becoming a member of either of these SSIGs please contact standards@tappi.org.

T 611 cm-07 "Analysis of bleaching powder, calcium hypochlorite bleach liquor, and bleach sludge" (May 12, 2016)

T 656 cm-07 "Measuring, sampling, and analyzing white waters" (May 17, 2016)
