    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method is designed for determining the water-holding capacity, Cwh, of bibulous papers such as facial tissues, towels, wipes, nonwovens, etc., using predetermined times of soaking and excess water extraction under a predetermined low suction head resulting from a controlled capillary draining action.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D06 on Paper and Paper Products, this test method was withdrawn in December 2009 due to insufficient committee interest in reviewing and revising the standard.
