Research Report RR:D01-1158
Research Report D01-1158 presents the results of the Interlaboratory Study used to establish the precision and bias statement for ASTM D4361-10, Standard Test Method for Apparent Tack of Printing Inks and Vehicles by a Three-Roller Tackmeter, using Geometry A instrumentation. The collaborative study included 17 labs who used method D4361-10 to test six inks covering a range of tacks from low tack coldset black through to heatset and sheet fed inks for coated stock with high tacks. The research report presents summary method performance statistics as well as the measurement data used to calculate results for the study.
