Description / Abstract:

This practice covers a procedure for estimating the performance of fuser oil in an electrostatic copier or printer.

This practice describes a procedure for determining fuser oil-related changes in the print quality measured during testing at specific intervals.

Properties evaluated for all systems include odor emission, paper jam rate, paper wrap rate, paper crinkle rate, and fuser roller life.

Properties evaluated for recirculating systems include changes in viscosity, volatile matter content, and surface tension.

This practice describes a procedure for comparing the performance of a subject fuser oil with that of a control fuser oil.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

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.
