This test method describes the procedure for determination of both surface and volume (bulk) d-c resistivity of writing paper. This test method is specific for the Keithley 6105 resistivity adapter.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D06 on Paper and Paper Products, this test method was withdrawn in January 2011 in accordance with section 10.5.3.1 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.
1.1 This test method describes the procedure for determination of both surface and volume (bulk) d-c resistivity of writing paper. This test method is specific for the Keithley 6105 resistivity adapter.
1.2 This test method has been developed as a special case for use on writing papers processed in high-speed nonimpact printers where resistivity control is critical. It is not in conflict with Test Methods D 257.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
