    Significance and Use

    This practice can be used to determine the degree to which an ink jet cartridge fails to print. This may be due to drying of ink jet ink, precipitation of an ink ingredient during periods of inactivity, or improper filling of the ink jet cartridge.

    This practice can be used for the evaluation of an OEM (original equipment manufacturer) cartridge compared to a refilled or remanufactured ink jet printer cartridge when this practice is performed on the same printer.

    This practice is applicable to all-in one ink jet cartridges, whether single or multicolor.

    This practice can be used to assess design goals of manufacturers or remanufacturers of ink jet printer cartridges for ink capability, ink filling effectiveness, and the manufacturing or remanufacturing process.

    This practice can be used to determine the reliability of a development, production, or competitive ink jet ink.

    This practice may be used for research and development and for quality acceptance evaluation.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice describes how to determine the ability of an all-in-one ink jet cartridge to print reliably during the life of the ink jet cartridge.

    1.2 This practice can be used to evaluate the reliability of an all-in-one ink jet cartridge as it would be used under daily use conditions.

    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.
