TAPPIís Dirt Chart cards are manufactured from an original negative produced on DuPont CRR film and estimate the equivalent black area (EBA) of dirt or other colored specks. The cards are processed on a rapid-access processor using Kodak/Fujifilm chemistry. Each card is produced on photographic paper via a contacting frame with an NuArc light source and NuArc light integrator which controls the specific exposure designated for accuracy and consistency. Cards are exposed to 20 units of light. To ensure the accuracy of the charts, each piece is measured by examining the 2.0 dot with a 100 x magnifier that has a reticle (scale) incremented in 5/10,000mm, on the lens. Card Stock. This opaque chart is to be used with TAPPI Test Methods T 213, T 437, and T 537.
0109DIRTT Size Estimation Chart (transparency)
Developed from and based on the TAPPI Dirt Estimation Chart, this transparency is used to measure the size of spots, defects, or inclusions over the range of 0.02 to 5.00 square millimeters in paper and other industrial materials such as textiles or plastics. Instructions for use of this transparency are outlined in TAPPI Test Method T 564. The chart can be used in a large number of applications where there is a need to estimate a size (area) by way of a direct comparison to a known area disk or rectangle. Applications may include, but are not limited to, the measurement of visible ink spatter on printed surfaces, the estimation of the growth rate of bio-colonies, air inclusions in transparent plastic castings and films, etc. The chart must NOT be used to estimate the equivalent black area (EBA) of dirt or other colored specks (use the TAPPI Dirt Estimation Chart in conjunction with T 213 or T 437 or use image analysis, T 563, for EBA measurement). The charts are manufactured from an original negative produced on DuPont CRR film. A rapid-access processor using Kodak/Fujifilm chemistry is used for processing the transparencies. Each film positive is produced on Kodak Contact 2000 film, using a NuArc contacting frame with an NuArc light source and NuArc light integrator which controls the exposure. The cards are exposed to 20 units of light. To measure the accuracy of the end product, each transparency is measured by looking at the 2.0 dot with a 100-power magnifier that has a reticle (scale), incremented in 5/10,000ís of a millimeter, on the lens. The dots on the chart are correct within an average 10% or 0.005 square millimeters, whichever is the larger.
