1. Scope 1.1 This test method covers the determination of the time required for water to pass through a specimen of paper. It is based on the dry-indicator method of Carson (1-4) and modifications of it developed by Abrams (5) and Codwise (6-8) . 1.2 It is designed for use with materials that require a relatively short time to test (up to approximately 30 s), and has been found useful in testing slack sized papers.
