Abstract : This is an interim report describing in detail two mill runs and the associated laboratory research work on the effect of replacing esparto with viscose rayon fiber in the Navy H-60 filter paper. It is shown that an exceedingly superior filter paper can be manufactured using causticized viscose in place of esparto fiber. In general, the viscose-asbestos filter paper exhibits no deleterious break or relaxation effects. Further study is required to determine optimum conditions of the causticizing treatment, washing, viscose fiber size and length, and general mill procedure. (Author)
