Scuff Tester

The scuffing is a term referred to the process of scuffing of a material when it is rubbed against any other material or surface which is rougher. The scuff tester is an ideal instrument that is used for estimation of the scuffing resistance of the packaging materials such as printed films or labels. Scuff Tester works incessantly by rubbing the surface of two printed materials on the same plane by setting the printed side face to face. The scuff tester instrument is used for evaluating the damage done to the print quality of the printed materials on rubbing against any rough surface. With the scuff tester instrument, the color quality and consistency of the printed packaging materials is also tested.

    The major problem we usually face in the packaging unit is the inferior quality of prints on the packaging labels. But with Presto’s Scuff Tester, it becomes easy for us to test the print transfer quality of scuffing resistance of the labels. The instrument continuously produces scuffing on the printed labels to test the quality. Thanks to presto for providing such a useful machine. I am grateful to have the product.

    Scuff tester is best and useful tool for checking the ink quality of the printed material. Important information can be saved from rubbing if right tool is used earlier to check the quality of ink.
