New International Standard (ISO 20494) on Paper Stability

New International Standard (ISO 20494) on Paper Stability

Up until now, the only International Standard that specified the requirements for paper permanence was ISO 9706 according to which, in order for paper to be classified as permanent it shall have a lignin content of less than 1%. The limitation on lignin content in ISO 9706 has – until now – excluded the presence of modern pulps such as high-yield chemical pulps, BCTMP, APMP (alkaline peroxide mechanical pulp) and most recycled pulps from paper products classified as "permanent" according to the requirement of ISO 9706. However, based on research findings on paper permanence over the past 20 years, we know that such pulps can be used in a wide range of paper products for general graphic applications with no significant loss of mechanical properties over long storage periods.
