Inkjet Prints and ASTM Testing

By Mark Gottsegen @

""This long article is an attempt to address the multitudes of attitudes that have developed over the last six years regarding the use, longevity, and testing of inkjet inks. The first section briefly introduces those products and why it’s important to think about them as art materials. The second section provides an overview of ASTM International’s art materials standards-writing activities compared to those of the International Standards Organization. The last portion of the article discusses the testing of inkjet products, proposes reasons why current methods will not satisfy artists, and how ASTM’s methods will work."
