    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method describes the procedure for measuring the monochrome diffuse reflection print density and background for large areas on printed pages from electrophotographic printers. It describes the test target and calculations for evaluating the print density and background.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F05 on Business Imaging Products, this test method was withdrawn in January 2020 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the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. Scope

    1.1 This test method describes the procedure for measuring the monochrome diffuse reflection print density and background for large areas on printed pages from electrophotographic printers. It describes the test target and calculations for evaluating the print density and background.

    1.2 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.
