Ink Rub Tester I0001

Ink Rub Tester I0001

Ink Rub Tester I0001 is used to determine the quality of adhesion, and scuff resistance of ink to paper surfaces, plastic and aluminium film. Operation of the motorized unit is easy and it can be done entering the number of rubs in the pre-set counter, and then starting the unit. It will rub the sample until the pre-set value is achieved.

Dry and Wet rub can be performed on the Ink Rub Tester. The method of operation is that a 2 or 4 Lb weight with a clean white board is swept across the test piece for a set number of times, and then closely examined for the amount of scuffing.
