Paper Standards and Packaging Standards

    ASTM's paper and packaging standards are instrumental in the evaluation and testing of the physical, mechanical, and chemical properties of various pulp, paper, and paperboard materials that are processed primarily to make containers, shipping boxes and parcels, and other packaging and labeling products. These standards help to identify characteristics such as chemical content, acidity or alkalinity, tensile breaking strength, peel adhesion, and water, oil, and tear resistance among others. Also, these paper and packaging standards help papermaking plants, packaging and shipping companies, and other producers and end-users of paper materials and products in the proper processing and assessment procedures to ensure their quality towards efficient commercial use.
