  • The maximum ash content of these grades is intermediate between ash-less and qualitative grades.

Grade 50 (2.7 µm):

  • Retention of very fine crystalline precipitates.
  • The thinnest of all Whatman filter papers.
  • Slow flow rate. Hardened and highly glazed surface.

  • Very strong when wet.
  • Will withstand wet handling and precipitate removal by scraping.
  • In the electronics industry, the virtual absence of fibre shedding is utilized in carriers for integrated circuits.
