Rub proof your labels and prints with precision scuff resistance testing

Rub proof your labels and prints with precision scuff resistance testing

Have you ever received a label or print that was scratched and scuffed, making it difficult to read important information? Or have you ever wondered why some labels or prints seem to hold up better than others over time? The answer lies in precision scuff resistance testing. This can be done with the help of a Presto scuff resistance tester.  This is one of the high-quality lab testing instruments that is used to evaluate the rub resistance (i.e. the damage which has taken place through rubbing) of labels and other printed materials.

This high-quality scuff resistance tester rubs two printed surfaces against each other (face-to-face) in the same plane, at the same speed under a constant rubbing pressure. The scuff tester can be used in paper & packaging industries to evaluate color transfer from printed or coated surfaces during rubbing.
It is designed and produced according to ASTM Standards and measures the number of double strokes required to cause Fuzz (distortion of appearance) and Peel (actual rupture of the surface). This high-quality lab testing equipment will provide you with highly accurate lab testing results and ensures that quality materials will be delivered to the customers.
In this blog, we are going to provide you with brief information about the Presto scuff resistance tester and how this quality testing equipment will help to test the scuff resistance of different materials. We will also discuss a brief about Presto scuff resistance testing.

All about scuff resistance testing

Scuff Resistance Testing is a type of testing that is used to determine the resistance of a material to scuffing or scratching. This type of testing is important for materials that will be used in high-traffic areas or where there is potential for abrasion.
This type of quality testing is important for companies that produce products with printed inks and labels and ensures that quality products will be delivered to the customers.
We at Presto have designed a high-quality lab testing instrument that is used to analyze the effect of printed labels and ensure that quality materials will be delivered to the customers.
Now, let us discuss a brief about the Presto scuff tester and how this quality testing instrument is helpful in testing the scuff resistance of printed labels.

Testing Scuff Resistance of Printed Labels with Presto scuff resistance Tester

Presto Scuff Resistance Tester is state-of-the-art lab testing equipment designed specifically to evaluate the scuff resistance of printed labels. Scuffing refers to the damage caused by rubbing two materials against each other, and this tester ensures that your labels can withstand such rubbing without compromising their quality. By subjecting the labels to controlled rubbing motions, the Presto Scuff Resistance Tester accurately measures the level of damage incurred during the rubbing process.
This helps in determining the durability and longevity of the labels, ensuring that they can withstand various handling and environmental conditions. With its precision and reliability, the Presto Scuff Resistance Tester enables manufacturers and printers to produce high-quality labels that can withstand the rigors of transportation, storage, and everyday usage.
It has been made with high-quality features that are listed below.
