    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method covers the measurement of thermal response of various thermal mass transfer ribbons used for facsimile, labels, medical recorders, plotters, and printers.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F05 on Business Imaging Products, this test method was withdrawn in March 2015. This standard is being withdrawn without replacement due to its limited use by industry.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the measurement of thermal response of various thermal mass transfer ribbons used for facsimile, labels, medical recorders, plotters, and printers.

    1.2 The Atlantek Thermal Response Tester Model 200 described in this test method may be used for specification acceptance, product development, and research applications. Although this test method identifies specific printheads, the tester does support additional printheads.

    1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    1.4 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. For specific precautionary statements, see Section 8.
