Forwarded to Printech from D. Eggleston of CA:

Does anyone know where I can get some authoritative data for
estimating litho ink coverage on various types of substrates? I
have a matrix that estimates amount of ink per square-inch, and
covers most inks and substrates, but there is no reference as to
who made the matrix or where the information came from. I use
this matrix to calculate the ink emissions portion of the
potential to emit for new or modified presses, and I am concerned
that I cannot verify the source and validity if questioned by our
local regulatory agency.
