The device is used mainly in paper and packaging industries to measure the color or print consistency of printed material during rubbing.
Presto Stantest manufactures Scuff Resistance Tester to measure the rubbing proof of prints on paper or laminations. It is also used to measure the transfer of color from printed surface at the time of rubbing or scuffing. The application of scuffing can be extended as per the requirement or quality of the material to measure the abrasion resistance of some plastic materials and aluminum foils.
