Standard Test Method for Surface Wax Coating On Corrugated Board

2017-07-14 /Active
Significance and Use:

5.1 Wax coatings are applied to corrugated board to provide a better barrier against moisture or other agents or to provide improved appearance or abrasion resistance. These performance features are influenced by the amount of wax present on the surface.

5.2 During most coating operations, the major portion of the wax applied will congeal on the surface, while a minor proportion will migrate into and become embedded in the fibers of the facing. This method measures only the portion on the surface.


1.1 This test method covers determination of the weight of wax that is present as a coating on the surface of corrugated board. This method is applicable to board to which wax has been applied by curtain coating, roll coating, or other methods; the substrate board may or may not contain impregnating (saturating) wax within its structure.

Note 1: If it is known that the specimen has coating wax only, with no internal saturating wax, the total coating wax applied may be determined by Test Method D3344.

1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard.

1.2.1 Exception—Non-SI units given in parentheses are provided for information only.

1.3 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.

1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
