WIST offers recyclability/repulpability certification for corrugated products
In partnership with IPS Testing Services, the Appleton, WI, independent testing laboratory, 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.
WIST and IPS Testing in 2011 created a formal joint venture that expands the long-standing relationship between the two organizations. The agreement allows both entities to offer additional tests and overall services to their clients.
