Significance and Use
This test method may be used to evaluate several performance characteristics of typewriter cover-up correction media on a comparative basis.
This test method is suitable for manufacturing control on a limited basis, due to the length of time required for some tests.
1.1 This test method covers information and procedures for evaluating several performance qualities of typewriter cover-up correction tapes and tabs on a comparative basis for general office use.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered 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.
