ASTM WK30602

    Work Item: ASTM WK30602 - Withdrawal of D4949 - 94(2002) Standard Test Method for Determination of D-C Resistivity of Writing Paper (Keithley Method)

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D06.92 | Committee D06 | Contact Staff Manager



    D4949-94 (2002) Standard Test method for Determination of D-C Resistivity of Writing Paper (Keithley Method) Ballot for withdrawal without replacement. Based on discussions beginning over two years ago, plus an Administrative ballot within D 06, regarding the future of D 06, it has become clear that member support for maintaining the D 06 Committee is lacking. It was agreed that many of the existing D 06 methods should be withdrawn. This method was originally used for papers requiring surface conductivity for use in certain printers. The method currently sees very little if any use. There is insufficient interest or use to develop a between laboratory reproducibility statement as is required for ASTM methods.
