    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method describes the measurement of the resistance to mechanical penetration of sanitary tissue papers. Application to other paper types is possible but is not covered here.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D06 on Paper and Paper Products, this test method was withdrawn in February 2011 due to lack of member support. An equivalent method exists in ISO/CEN.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method describes the measurement of the resistance to mechanical penetration of sanitary tissue papers. Application to other paper types is possible but is not covered here.

    1.2 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.
