Wet Tensile Test on Paper Explained

DIN ISO 3781, TAPPI T 456 

In the wet tensile test the strength of the paper (or tissue) in a wet state is determined. Wet tensile test on paper is carried out according to DIN ISO 3781 or TAPPI T 456. If paper is used or processed in a wet condition, wet strength is one of the key material properties.
