    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This practice covers a procedure to determine the weight of toner used for printing a single page derived from an electrophotographic process. The practice uses a printer text target specifically developed for each printer for a page coverage of 5 ± 0.5 % of the printable area. This practice requires specific tools and skills for disassembling and reassembling printer cartridges.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F05 on Business Imaging Products, this practice was withdrawn in June 2017 in accordance with Section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the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.

The practice uses a printer text target specifically developed for each printer for a page coverage of 5 ± 0.5 % of the printable area. This practice requires specific tools and skills for disassembling and reassembling printer cartridges.

    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.
