This test method should be used to determine if a fungal control agent is effective to preserve pigment suspensions, dye solutions, pulp slurries, starch solutions, polymers, sizing agents, latex emulsions, and other specific aqueous-based materials used in the paper industry. Separate evaluations should be made on a representative type for each specific class of product to be preserved.
Note 1-Control of bacterial spoilage of similar products can be evaluated by Test Method E 723.
Note 2-Slimicides for control of fungal or bacterial slime can be evaluated by Test Methods E 599 and E 600.View Less
1.1 This laboratory test method is used to determine the efficacy of a fungal control agent to prevent spoilage of in-process aqueous-based products used in the paper industry.
1.2 For information on bacterial control agents, see Test Method E 723.
1.3 It is the responsibility of the investigator to determine whether good laboratory practices (GLP) are required and to follow them when appropriate (see 40 CFR, 160).
1.4 A knowledge of microbiological techniques is required for these procedures.
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.
