Abstract:

This is an interim report describing in detail two mill runs and the associated laboratory work on the effects of replacing esparto with yucca fiber in the Navy H-60 filter paper. It is shown that a satisfactory filter paper can be manufactured using the domestic yucca fiber. The presence of rayon in the filter paper is shown to be objectionable. The effect of flexing the filter paper requires further study.
