    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This practice covers an accelerated procedure intended to screen ink jet printers for lightfastness in office environments where overhead fluorescent light and window-filtered daylight is used for illumination.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F05 on Business Imaging Products, this practice was withdrawn in May 2016 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end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. Scope

    1.1 This practice covers an accelerated procedure intended to screen ink jet prints for lightfastness in office environments where overhead fluorescent light and window-filtered daylight is used for illumination.

    1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

    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. Specific precautionary statements are given in Section 8.
