Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 1 June 2017
Status: active
Page Count: 16
ICS Code (Document imaging applications): 37.080
significance And Use:

4.1 This guide is useful for the photomicrography and photomacrography of metals and other materials.

4.2 The subsequent processing of the photographic materials is also treated.

scope:

1.1 This guide outlines various methods which may be followed in the photography of metals and materials with the reflected-light microscope. Methods are included for preparation of prints and transparencies in black-and-white and in color, using both direct rapid and wet processes.

1.2 Guidelines are suggested to yield photomicrographs of typical subjects and, to the extent possible, of atypical subjects as well. Information is included concerning techniques for the enhanced display of specific material features. Descriptive material is provided where necessary to clarify procedures. References are cited where detailed descriptions may be helpful.

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 requirements prior to use. Specific precautionary statements are given in X1.7.
