Grease resistance of paper or board with palm oil method
The grease resistance of paper and board is determined by establishing the time taken for a simulated “fat material” (palm kernel oil) to penetrate (break through) the sheet of paper or board.
The test is primarily intended for food board, greaseproof parchment, and vegetable parchment. It is also applicable to paper or board that has been treated with organophobic materials or made grease-resistant by a plastic extrusion coating.
