Developed by Subcommittee: D06.92
WITHDRAWN, NO REPLACEMENT
This test method covers a procedure used to measure the resistance to bending of paper and paperboard.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D06 on Paper and Paper Products, this test method was withdrawn in May 2010 because an equivalent TAPPI publication exists.
1.1 This test method covers a procedure used to measure the resistance to bending of paper and paperboard.
1.2 The bending moment required to deflect the free end of a 38-mm (1.5-in.) wide vertically clamped specimen 15° from its center line when the load is applied 50 mm (1.97 in.) away from the clamp is determined. The resistance to bending is calculated from the bending moment.
1.3 Some instruments of the type described in this test method (see Section 6) may be equipped with ultrasensitive attachments or may be modified to accommodate shorter specimen lengths than that specified in this test method (see Section 9).
1.4 Test Method D 5650
1.5 Test results obtained using modifications of the basic Taber-type instrument such as that described in Test Method D 5650
1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
