Significance and Use
This practice is intended to provide a means of evaluating comparative image quality relative to carbonless paper, carbon paper, and similar image-producing products.
1.1 This practice covers a standardized procedure utilizing the computer impact print-out unit as an imaging device where the performance properties of carbonless paper, carbon paper, and similar image-producing products are measured. The printer can be either a high speed printer connected to a mainframe computer or a printer connected to a personal or mini-computer.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The SI values in parentheses are given for information only.
