Standard Practice for Assessing the Quality of Direct-Image Paper Offset Masters (Withdrawn 2002)


1.1 The practice covers all commercially available direct-image paper offset masters.

1.2 Test assemblies prepared in accordance with this practice may be used to assess quality variation from shipment to shipment of the same commercial brand, or to compare various commercial brands with each other.

1.3 This practice covers only the "direct" imaging aspect of paper offset masters. Imaging of such products by means that involve the transfer of an image in its entirety, as by proof press, offset press, duplicator, or copying machines, will be covered in a separate recommended practice.

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. See 7.3 for specific precautionary statements.
