    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method covers uncoated and coated papers. It is designed to measure the surface strength of paper or its resistance to picking. It is not applicable to loosely felted papers such as blotters or roofing felts, nor to some coated papers containing thermoplastic resins in the coating adhesive.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D06 on Paper and Paper Products, this test method was withdrawn in February 2010 because an equivalent TAPPI publication exists.
