The Digital Ink Rub Tester is designed to measure scuffing or ink rub resistance. Several tests can be performed including dry rub, wet rub, wet bleed or transfer, wet smear, functional rub/wet rub.
Five speeds - The standard speed (42 cycles per minute) and four additional speeds (21, 85, 100 and 106 cycles per minute) allow you to decrease the testing time for samples requiring a higher number of rubs
Perform dry rub (the amount of transfer ink from one dry surface to another), wet rub (the amount of transfer of ink from wetted surface to another), wet bleed or transfer (ink transfer to a water-saturated blotter), wet smear (similar to wet bleed with the addition or rub cycles), functional rub/wet rub (smear or transfer tests using a liquid other than water and hot abrasion).
Additional variable speed ranging from 20-115 cycles per minute
Infinitely variable cycle count from 1-999
Continuous cycle mode
Large character LCD Display
Displays count up, count down, test status and configurations
Preset counts remain in memory
Selectable “test complete” alarm
Applications: Inks, Plastic film, Packaging, Paper, Labels, Coatings, Cartons, and Printed Materials
