Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 1 April 2007
Status: inactive
Page Count: 3
ICS Code (Paper and board): 85.060
significance And Use:

The folding endurance of a paper is frequently used to estimate the ability of the paper to withstand repeated bending, folding, and creasing, and may be encountered as a measure of the quality of... View More

scope:

1.1 This test method describes the use of the M.I.T.-type folding apparatus for determining folding endurance of paper. The M.I.T. tester can be adjusted for papers of any thickness; however, if the outer fibrous layers of paper thicker than about 0.25 mm (0.01 in.) rupture during the first few folds, the test loses its significance. The procedure for the Schopper-type apparatus is given in Test Method D 643. This test method is the technical equivalent of TAPPI T 511.

1.2 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.
