|Publication Date:||10 August 1996|
1.1 This test method covers the procedure for humidified (50% relative humidity and 90°C) heat treatment of paper or board and the general procedure for testing the heat-treated materials. The purpose is to obtain, by an accelerated test, inferences about the aging qualities of the paper.
1.2 This test method is based on work performed on printing and writing papers but may be used with discretion for other types of papers and boards. This procedure is not intended for use with electrical insulating papers, whose testing is described in Methods D 202.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
