This specification covers pads of repositionable, colored, note paper. Each sheet has a strip of pressure-sensitive adhesive on the back side. A hand-operated steel roller shall be used in the manufacture of the pads and a cylindrical mandrel shall be used for flagging test of the pads. A minimum average of determined sheets of paper shall be assembled in the form of a pad. No individual pad shall contain less than a certain number of sheets. The pad of paper and a backing sheet shall be securely fastened together by means of the repositionable, pressure-sensitive adhesive coating. The paper to be used in the manufacture of the pad shall be determined by its basis weight and thickness. In order to determine the sheets' overall performance, the following properties shall be tested: writing quality, sheet removal, multiple sheet lift, fiber pull, initial flagging, and repositionable flagging. The sheets of pad paper shall be clean and free from dirt, foreign matter, holes, tears, wrinkles, and other defects which might affect appearance or serviceability. The sheets shall be uniform with respect to color and formation. Pads shall be square cut with smooth, clean edges.

1.1 This specification covers pads of repositionable, colored, note paper. Each sheet has a strip of pressure-sensitive adhesive on the back side.
1.2 The values stated in either SI or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently, without combining values in any way.
1.3 The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to Section 14, Performance Requirements. 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 requirements prior to use.
