Grease resistance of paper or board with the turpentine method
This test determines the penetration of greases and oil, commonly found in foodstuffs. The test can be used to evaluate and grade the usability of greaseproof papers and vegetable parchments.
The analysis might not be suitable to evaluate packaging materials that are intended to contain these oils or greases, but it can give a preliminary indication of the paper's grease resistance.
