ASTM WK71341

    Revision of E875 - 15 Standard Practice for Evaluation of Fungal Control Agents as Preservatives for Aqueous-Based Products Used in the Paper Industry

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: E875 - 15

    Developed by Subcommittee: E35.15 | Committee E35 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK71341


    Keywords

    aqueous-based products; fungi; fungal control agent; fungal spores; paper; preservative ;;

    Rationale

    E875 is due for revision/re-approval in 2020. E875 and E723 are similar except for the test cultures used. Over the past several years, Solenis has found that mixed bacterial & fungal cultures can be used without degrading the protocols ability to assess either bactericidal or fungicidal activity. This Work Item proposes to combine the inocula and to change the title to: Practice for Evaluation of Antimicrobial Agents as Preservatives for Aqueous-Based Products Used in the Paper Industry.
