Page Count: 4
ICS Code (IT terminal and other peripheral equipment): 35.180
significance And Use:

5.1 Abrasion and smudge resistance during handling, transport, and storage is essential to prevent the marring or smudging of images produced from business imaging products. Recognizing that the... View More

scope:

1.1 This practice covers the procedure for determining the abrasion and smudge resistance of images produced from office products using a GA-CAT comprehensive abrasion tester.

1.2 This practice is applicable to images produced from business imaging products such as typewriters, copiers, impact printers, and nonimpact printers.

1.3 Other test methods using the Crockmeter, Sutherland rub tester, and Taber Abrader can be employed to evaluate smudge and abrasion characteristics. The results obtained by these units are not necessarily equivalent to those obtained with the GA-CAT.

1.4 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.

1.5 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.
