Standard Test Method for Noninterference of Adhesives in Repulping (Withdrawn 2003)
|Publication Date:||3 May 1999|
|ICS Code (Paper production processes):||85.020|
1.1 This test method covers the repulpability of adhesives and adhesive coated products under normal repulping conditions in a papermaking environment. This test method does not address the impact of these adhesives on the process water, or its suitability with different substrates, backings, or facings. (Additional testing may be required to address the effect of soluble adhesives depending on the papermaking environment).
1.2 This general method does not measure or predict repulpability in cases of extremely acidic or alkaline repulping conditions, but the method can be extended suitably to those conditions.
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.
