Product Description:

Qualtech Products Industry MEK Rub Tester is professional Solvent Rub Tester to evaluate the Rub Resistance of printed samples and photosensitive coatings on the surface of substrates and to evaluate the color transfer of printed ink, paint, coated surfaces and photosensitive sample surfaces through rub abrasion.

The MEK Rub Resistance Test effectively determines the abrasion resistance of ink layers, photosensitive layers and multi-layer coatings and the performance of coatings on printed surfaces.

The Solvent Rub Resistance Test also evaluates the abrasion resistance of specialized plastic materials, aluminum foils, plastic foils and related sample materials.

In addition, the Solvent Rub Test is effectively applied in the printing industry, gravure industry and in the packaging industry to ensure a high level of quality.

The Solvent Rub Resistance Test is performed by rubbing a gauze with a solvent across the coated sample surface with a constant speed, a constant test load for a specified number of cycles. A standard MEK Rub Abrasion Test is performed with 100 cycles and can be set up to 9999 cycles. This Automatic MEK Test offers a high level of accuracy and repeatability. The solvent which is applied onto the gauze when performing the Solvent Abrasion Test is Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK) and other related solvents. 

This professional MEK Rub Resistance Tester offers the newest microchip technology combined with a large Color LCD Display, comfortable Softtouch Buttons, a precision engineered MEK Abrasion Head, precision mechanics, precision engineered Test Loads, a user-friendly Sample Holder, user-friendly Menu Navigation, user-friendly programming, user-friendly application, easy cleaning, high accuracy and high precision, reliable performance, additional custom engineered Sample Holders, an ergonomic design, longevity and much more.

An optional Heated Abrasion Head is available to perform Hot Abrasion Resistance Tests with printed substrates.

This professional Automatic MEK Solvent Rub Tester is designed and engineered in accordance with international test standards including:

ASTM D 4752 - Standard Practice for Measuring MEK Resistance of Ethyl Silicate (Inorganic) Zinc-Rich Primers by Solvent Rub):

The MEK Solvent Rub Test is completed in combination with absorbent Cotton Pads or with a Cotton Gauze and a Test Load 1000g ±10g.
