Significance and Use
5.1 This practice should be used to determine if an antimicrobial preserves pigment suspensions, dye solutions, pulp slurries, starch solutions, polymers, sizing agents, latex emulsions, and other aqueous-based materials used in the paper industry from bacterial spoilage.
Note 1: Control of fungal spoilage of similar products can be evaluated by Test Method .
Note 2: Slimicides for control of fungal or bacterial slime can be evaluated by Test Method .
1.1 This laboratory practice is used to determine the efficacy of an antimicrobial for preventing bacterial spoilage of in-process aqueous-based products used in the paper industry. For information on fungal spoilage, see Test Method . This practice should be performed by persons who have had basic microbiological training.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
