    Abstract

    This specification describes the minimum requirements to ensure performance of cut-sized white watermarked and unwatermarked office papers, including bond, reprographic, and laser printer papers. This specification covers virgin, recycled, and recycled content paper products. The paper shall be in accordance with reasonable industry practice with regard to texture, formation, finish, caliper, lint, dust, slime spots, wrinkles, folds, and scuff marks. The functional requirements for which the papers shall be tested on and consequently adhere to are weight per unit area, opacity, bursting strength, thickness, Sheffield smoothness, moisture content, extract pH, and nominal sheet dimensions (length and width). Grades of brightness and standards for labeling are described as well.
