    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This practice covers methods that can be used to determine the stain resistance of an image produced by an ink jet printer. Stain resistance is determined by placing a staining agent on printed patches and visually observing a change to the patches after the staining agent has been removed.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F05 on Business Imaging Products, this practice was withdrawn in May 2016 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end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 methods that can be used to determine the stain resistance of an image produced by an ink jet printer. Stain resistance is determined by placing a staining agent on printed patches and visually observing a change to the patches after the staining agent has been removed.

    1.2 This practice can be used to evaluate the primary print colors (cyan, magenta, yellow and black), the secondary colors (red, blue and green) and composite black (cyan plus magenta plus yellow).

    1.3 The values stated in SI 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.
