ASTM | Standard Test Method for Relative Mileage of News Ink on Newsprint
Ink mileage on a production press is of economic importance of the user of printing inks, the lower the mileage figure, the less ink is required to produce a job. This test method provides a procedure by which news inks can be assessed for mileage or newsprint stocks for ink receptivity in the laboratory.
Because of the many variables that exist among laboratory and production presses, this test method is apt to yield more meaningful information when results are expressed on a relative rather than an absolute basis.
