TURPENTINE TEST FOR GREASE-RESISTANT PAPERS
|Publication Date:||1 June 2013|
This method gives an accelerated comparison of the relative rates at which oils or greases commonly found in foodstuffs may be expected to penetrate papers such as un-coated, or unimpregnated greaseproof, glassine or vegetable parchment papers. This test may also be used to select and predict the performance of materials for such an intended end use.
CAUTION: This standard may require the use, and/or disposal, of chemicals, which may present serious health hazards to humans. Procedures for the safe handling of such chemicals are set forth on Material Safety Data Sheets, which have been developed, and are maintained, by all manufacturers, importers, and distributors of potentially hazardous chemicals. Prior to the use of this test standard, the user must determine whether any of the materials to be used, or disposed of, are potentially hazardous. If so, the user must strictly follow the procedures specified by both the manufacturer, as well as local, provincial, and federal authorities for safe use and disposal of these chemicals.
