    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This guide covers artist's papers used in the preparation of permanent or semipermanent artwork. Some works of art are expected to last several hundred years, and others might be expected to last 50 years, or less.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D06 on Paper and Paper Products, this guide was withdrawn in August 2010 due to a lack of interest in properties-based specifications for paper.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This guide covers artist's papers used in the preparation of permanent or semipermanent artwork. Some works of art are expected to last several hundred years, and others might be expected to last 50 years, or less.

    1.2 In selecting artist's papers for a given life expectancy, papers with acceptable strength are evaluated for life expectancy through accelerated aging.

    1.3 This guide is to be used for guidance in the purchase of permanent artist's paper.

    1.4 As a great variety of artist's papers are to be found in the market place, extensive information on the various kinds of paper in use by artists is beyond the scope of this guide. This guide is concerned mostly with life expectancy of the paper.

    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.
