This article discusses the development of a test method to measure the dimensional stability of paper. Two papers (one sized, one not sized) were used in this investigation. Simulated washing in distilled water was undertaken followed by drying under environmental conditions of 20 + 2C and 65 + 4% RH. The effect of up to five washing and drying cycles on the dimensional stability of the papers was investigated.
