    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This practice describes a procedure that can be used to determine the image quality of text, line- and solid-fill images produced by ink jet printers.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F05 on Business Imaging Products, this practice was withdrawn in May 2016 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end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.

    1.2 This practice can be used to evaluate black, process-black and primary ink, single-color images produced by ink jet printers.

    1.3 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.

    1.4 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 limitations prior to use.
