This test method covers the determination of the weight of wax that has been applied for coating of corrugated board, and the amount of impregnating (saturating) wax in the same facing.
This standard is being withdrawn without replacement due to its lack of use by the industry.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D02 on Petroleum Products and Lubricants, this test method was withdrawn in December 2012.
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the weight of wax that has been applied for coating of corrugated board, and the amount of impregnating (saturating) wax in the same facing.
1.2 This test method is especially applicable to board that has a coated surface and also contains wax saturation within the facing structure. Note 1 - The amount of surface wax on board that may or may not contain impregnating (saturating) wax within its structure may be determined alternatively by Test Method D 3521. If it is known that the specimen has coating wax only, with no internal impregnating wax, the total coating wax applied may be determined by Test Method D 3344.<>
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.
