    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This practice covers a method for the visual evaluation of the image quality formed by a carbonless copy paper in a business form when imaged with an electric or electronic typewriter.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F05 on Business Imaging Products, this practice was withdrawn in January 2020 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the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 practice covers a method for the visual evaluation of the image quality formed by a carbonless copy paper in a business form when imaged with an electric or electronic typewriter.

    Note 1—Electric or electronic typewriters covered by this procedure have a full-character type element. Examples of such elements are type bar, ball, and daisy wheel.

    1.2 The evaluation is made by comparison of the sample carbonless copy to a control.

    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.
