This International Standard specifies a test method for the prediction of certain physical or chemical property changes of imaging materials.
This International Standard is applicable to the Arrhenius test portion of ISO 18901, ISO 18905, ISO 18909, ISO 18912, and ISO 18919.
This International Standard is applicable to the prediction of the optical-density [D] loss or gain of imaging materials. Photographic dye images may be produced by chromogenic processing, by formation of diazo dyes, or by non-chromogenic methods such as dye diffusion and silver dye-bleaching processing. This International Standard also covers density changes caused by
- residual coupler changes in dye images,
- excess residual processing chemicals in silver black-and-white materials,
- temperature effects o thermally processed silver images.
This International Standard is applicable to the prediction of support degradation. One such example is the generation of acetic acid by degradation of cellulose acetate film support. Another example is the change in tensile energy absorption of black-and-white paper support.
