    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method determines the average length, width, and squareness of sheets of paper. It may also be used to determine the difference between consecutive sheets in a lot of paper. It is especially useful with printing and writing papers which have been cut to specific sizes. The procedure is applicable to a wide range of sheet dimensions, including dimensions as small as 1.6 in. (41 mm) to as large as 60.2 in. (1530 mm). While not the subject of this test method, the equipment described may be used to determine uniformity of hole punching and various process variables related to the cutting of sheeting papers.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D06 on Paper and Paper Products, this test method was withdrawn in October 2009 due to insufficient committee interest in reviewing and revising the standard.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method determines the average length, width, and squareness of sheets of paper. It may also be used to determine the difference between consecutive sheets in a lot of paper. It is especially useful with printing and writing papers which have been cut to specific sizes. The procedure is applicable to a wide range of sheet dimensions, including dimensions as small as 1.6 in. (41 mm) to as large as 60.2 in. (1530 mm). While not the subject of this test method, the equipment described may be used to determine uniformity of hole punching and various process variables related to the cutting of sheeting papers.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are provided for information purposes only.

    1.3 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.
