Performance and durability of wrting, printing and copying on paper
DIN ISO 11798
DIN ISO 11798 specifies requirements and test methods for evaluating the ageing resistance of typefaces, prints and copies on paper.
The test includes the following individual tests:
- Appearance of the characters
- Light fastness
- Water resistance
- Impression resistance (smearing)
- Abrasion resistance
- Heat resistance
- Influence of the inscription on the paper strength
Writing and printing devices that comply with this standard are very likely to produce durable characters that show little or no change over a very long storage period.
This test can be ordered for printing and copying devices together with the test according to §12 of the DONot at a reduced price.
