    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D6868 - 11

    Developed by Subcommittee: D20.96 | Committee D20 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    Manufacturers have asked if ASTM D6868 could be expanded to cover uncoated paper products. This can be achieved by creating similar requirements for uncoated paper/board products and removing the coating requirements, as are proposed in this work item.
