WIST laboratory services include analysis and testing for the paper industry and sustainability services, including recyclability and repulpability. We're working to expand the current capabilities of the Paper Science and Engineering Department’s testing laboratory to meet the needs of emerging technologies. Laboratory Services provides the expertise and infrastructure to support and bring new laboratory services into WIST. Inquiries about WIST laboratory services, including services available, should be directed to John Baldus, WIST Director of Laboratory Services.
In partnership with IPS Testing Services of Appleton, WI, WIST is now offering repulpability/recyclability certification. WIST and IPS labs were audited by the Corrugated Packaging Alliance protocol technical team, which led to approval for the partners to perform certain tests of the Voluntary Standard for Repulping and Recycling Corrugated Fiberboard. The protocol is used to certify the repulpability and recyclability of wax alternatives for corrugated products that have been treated to improve performance in the presence of water and water vapor. To see how this testing service can benefit your company contact Paul Fowler, WIST executive director, at 715-346-3767.
