Ink Rub Test

Product Description:

Qualtech Products Industry Ink Rub Tester is a professional Abrasion Test Instrument and Scuff Test Instrument engineered to determine the Rub Resistance of prints and photosensitive coatings and to evaluate the color transfer of prints and coated samples through rub abrasion.
This includes the abrasion resistance of ink layers, photosensitive layers and coatings as well as the hardness of coatings on printed materials.

In addition this professional Ink Rub Tester is often used to evaluate the abrasion resistance of plastic products, aluminum foils, plastic foils and related materials and finds its further applications in the book printing and book binding industry, in the gravure industry and in the packaging industry.

This Scuff Tester is an ergonomic, motordriven Ink Resistance and Scuff Test Instrument which performs an arc motion across the surface of the printed or coated sample with a test strip which is supported by a specified weight.

The standard weights are two pounds and four pounds, additional custom made weights are available to extend the application range of this Ink Rub Tester and Scuff Test Instrument to allow a wider range of different tests. An additional heated weight provides a uniform test for the evaluation of Hot Abrasion Resistance of printed samples (available as accessory).

Offering a precision stroke this Ink Rub Tester provides highest accuracy and a higher repeatability during tests and simulates more closely the real life abrasion damage on samples.

This Ink Rub Tester is offering the newest microchip technology to ensure high precision combined with a large LCD display with backlight for comfortable and easy reading under different light conditions. The new control panel offers soft touch buttons to ensure the programming of test cycles is most comfortable and the scrolling through the navigation menu and selecting menu items is very user-friendly .

In addition to different available weights this professional Scuff Tester offers four different test speeds: 21 cycles per minute, 42 cycles per minute, 85 cycles per minute and 106 cycles per minute to enable the comparison of test results performed with older Ink Rub Testers and Scuff Test Instruments as well as to offer a more versatile application to best meet you individual test requirements. The main tests which can be performed with this Ink Rub Tester are: Dry Rub Tests, Wet Rub Tests, Wet Smear Tests, Wet Bleed Tests and Transfer Tests, Functional Rub Tests and Hot Abrasion Resistance Tests.

This Digital Rub Resistance Tester is designed and engineered in accordance with international test standards including:
