The Alkaline Paper Advocate

Volume 06, Number 1
Jun 1993

Editor's Page


On the front page of the last issue (December, vol. 5 no. 6), the price of the new edition of ANSI/NISO Z39.48 (the standard for permanent paper), the price was wrong. It only costs $20 plus postage. - See news item in this issue.

On the next page of the same issue, a Washington address was given for the American Forest and Paper Association (new name of the American Paper Institute). Actually, they have not moved from the old address yet, so until further notice they can be contacted at 260 Madison Ave., New York, NY 10016 (212/340-0600).

In the review on p. 46-47, I said that TAPPI did not use the category of "useful method." In fact, there is a whole book of TAPPI Useful Methods, and in it can be found TAPPI Useful Method 461 for fade resistance (though not Useful Method 518 for smoothness).
