Grease resistance of paper or board with the KIT test
In this test the grease resistance of paper is evaluated by using castor oil, n-heptane and toluene mixtures as per TAPPI 559 standard. A drop of the test liquid is dropped on the paper and after 15 seconds the drop is wiped off. If the paper is darkened during this time by the oil (the oil has penetrated the paper) the test is read as failed and a lower KIT mixture is tested. The test value will be given as the number of the first KIT liquid that passes this evaluation.
