    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D18.25.11 | Committee D18 | Contact Staff Manager

    1. Scope

    Develop a test to measure the swell volume of hydrophillic Mucilloid of Psyllium

    Psyllium is commonly used as a tacking agent for erosion control. The tacking strength of psyllium is related to its mucilage content. Swell volume measures mucilloid content and thus the tacking strength of the psyllum.
