1.1 This test method covers the determination of the quantity of water absorbed in a specified time through the surface of an overlaid wood-based panel. The test method measures the rate of water gain within a controlled surface area of the overlaid panel surface when exposed to standing water. The method was adapted from the principles of Test Method D5795.

1.2 This test method is applicable to various overlaid wood-based panels including, but not limited to, plywood (such as MDO grades and HDO grades referenced in PS 1–09), oriented strand board, medium density fiberboard, particleboard, and hardboard.

1.3 This test method does not address sampling procedures, number of replications nor performance criteria since those details vary depending upon the purpose of the testing and the type of product. The method is specific to the panel surface and does not evaluate water absorption or edge swell that may occur along panel edges. The method does not consider the variables related to in-service moisture conditions and therefore does not claim to directly relate to water absorption that may occur in actual panel use situations.

1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

1.5  This test method does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this test method to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.6  This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
