scope:

1.1 This practice describes a practical procedure to help determine the shelf life confidence of a sample ink jet cartridge in a short period of time. This practice uses an accelerated aging test based on the Arrhenius principle which states that for every 10°C increase in temperature there is, approximately, a two times rate increase of a chemical reaction.

1.2 This practice consists of comparing the ability of an ink jet cartridge to print after exposure to elevated temperature as compared to a reference ink jet cartridge, such as an OEM (original equipment manufacturer) ink jet cartridge.

1.3 This practice can be used to evaluate the effectiveness of the overall production of remanufactured or refilled ink jet cartridges.

1.4 To confirm the results of accelerated aging, real-time aging should also be conducted.

1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.6 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.
