Abstract : The U.S. Army Materiel Command Packaging, Storage and Containerization Center participated in a mini round-robin study to determine if Mosinee 696-C paper is a viable substitute for National Bureau of Standards (NBS) reference material No. 1810 standard linerboard. Three stress tests were conducted on 16 rolls of pressure-sensitive tapes using ASTM D 2860-83, Adhesion of Pressure-Sensitive Tape to Fiberboard at 90 deg Angle and Constant Stress; ASTM D 3654-82, Method A-Holding Power of Pressure Sensitive Tapes; and ASTM D 3654-82, Method B-Holding Power of Pressure-Sensitive Tapes. The tapes tested were film backing pressure-sensitive tapes conforming to PPP-T-60, type III, classes 1 and 2; paper backing pressure-sensitive tapes conforming to PPP-T-76; and filament reinforced tapes conforming to PPP-T-76; and filament reinforced tapes conforming to PPP-T-97. All tests were run at a standard temperature and humidity of 73 deg F. and 50 percent, respectively. The results obtained on the Mosinee 696-C demonstrated that this paper showed equivalent if not better performance than that of the NBS-1810 standard linerboard. Keywords: Adhesive tapes. (AW)
