Water Immersion Test

A test to determine a paperboard's water resistance or degree of sizing in which a paperboard sample is weighed, then immersed in water for a set period of time, at which point it is removed, blotted dry, and weighed again. Its gain in weight is its water immersion number, and is a gauge of the adequacy of its sizing.
