This test method covers procedures for determining tensile properties of paper and paperboard.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D06 on Paper and Paper Products, this test method was withdrawn in September 2009 due to insufficient committee interest in reviewing and revising the standard.
1.1 This test method covers procedures for determining tensile properties of paper and paperboard.
1.2 The procedures given in this test method are for use with constant-rate-of-elongation tensile testing equipment and as such, may be used with instruments designed for either vertical or horizontal operation, and whether manually operated or computer controlled.
1.3 These procedures are applicable for all types of paper, paperboard, paper products, and related materials within the measurement limitations of the equipment used. They are not for use with combined corrugated board.
1.4 Properties that may be determined using this test method include tensile strength, stretch, tensile energy absorption, tensile stiffness, breaking length, and tensile index.
1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The inch-pound units given in parentheses are for information only.
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.
