DTI-BPS adopts International Standard on tissue paper and tissue products

The Department of Trade and Industry’s Bureau of Philippine Standards (DTI-BPS) adopted the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 12625-4:2019 Tissue paper and tissue products – Part 4: Determination of tensile strength, stretch at maximum force and tensile energy absorption, as a Philippine National Standard (PNS).

Published by ISO in 2016, PNS ISO 12625-4:2019 was approved for adoption upon the recommendation of the DTI-BPS Technical Committee on Paper, Board and Pulps (BPS/TC 21). BPS/TC 21 is composed of representatives from the Technical Association of the Pulp and Paper Industry of the Philippines, Department of Science and Technology – Product Research and Development Institute, University of the Philippines Los Baños – College of Forestry and Natural Resources, Department of Budget and Management – Procurement Service, National Association of Consumers, Inc., Trust International Paper Corp., and Jedaric Chemicals Corp.

The PNS ISO 12625-4:2019 specifies the test method for the determination of the tensile strength, stretch at maximum force and tensile energy absorption of tissue paper and tissue products. A test piece of tissue paper or tissue product, of given dimensions, is stretched to break at a constant rate of elongation using a tensile-testing apparatus that measures and records the tensile force as a function of the elongation of the test piece. From the recorded data, the tensile strength, the corresponding stretch at maximum force and the tensile energy absorption can be calculated.
