Description / Abstract:
This method, based on the 1954 work of Hirt, King, and Schmitt
(1), may be used for the detection and estimation of
melamine resin in papers. It may be used in the presence of other
additives, such as glue, glycerin, and rosin, but the presence of
dyes or unbleached pulp may cause difficulties. The procedure was
originally issued in 1963. A complete precision study of the
procedure was never completed. The current (2010) use of melamine
resin in paper is minimal, in part perhaps because of the use of
formaldehyde to convert the melamine monomer to the melamine resin.
Based on limited current use of the method, users of the method
should evaluate interferences and precision of the procedure in its
