Test scuff resistance of FMCG packaging with Presto scuff tester

scuff resistance of FMCG packaging

FMCG packaging plays a crucial role in the marketing and protection of products. It is designed to not only attract consumers but also ensure that the contents inside remain safe and intact. However, with the ever-growing demand for convenient and aesthetically appealing packaging, it is important to test the scuff resistance of FMCG packaging accurately. This can be done with the help of a scuff resistance tester.

The Presto scuff testing instrument NXG model helps the manufacturers of the printing industry to ensure durable and effective material to withstand scuff resistance of materials. This high-quality lab testing instrument has been designed as per industrial standards including ASTM F2497-05, BS 3110:1959. It gives accurate lab testing results and ensures accuracy in every test result.

In this blog, we will discuss brief information about the Presto scuff testing instrument and how you can easily test the scuff resistance of packages with the help of this quality testing equipment.

What is scuff resistance and why FMCG packaging materials should be tested for scuff resistance?

Scuff resistance refers to a material's ability to withstand rubbing or friction without any damage or change in appearance. In FMCG packaging, scuffing can occur during transportation, handling, or even on store shelves where products are stacked close together. This can result in unsightly marks or scratches on the packaging, which can ultimately affect its appeal to consumers.

Thus, testing the scuff resistance of packaging materials like flexible film packaging products is essential to ensure that the printed ink will not get scuffed and that accurate products will be delivered. Moreover, scuffed packaging can also lead to other issues such as decreased barrier properties, and compromising product freshness and quality. Therefore, it is crucial for manufacturers to test their packaging materials for scuff resistance before delivery.

Presto offers the best FMCG packaging testing instruments at the best and most affordable prices. Now, let us discuss a brief about this quality testing equipment.

Easily Perform Scuff Resistance Test with Presto Scuff Resistance Tester

Scuff resistance is an important factor to consider in FMCG (Fast-moving consumer goods) packaging, as it directly affects the visual appeal and overall quality of the product. FMCG products are those that are sold quickly at relatively low cost and are consumed daily by consumers. This includes items such as food and beverage products, personal care products, household cleaning products, and more.

Presto is a leading scuff tester manufacturer and designs this quality testing instrument with highly advanced features. Users will get precise results by subjecting the test sample to a uniform load with specified movement. It achieves uniformity through the application of weights on the test sample, ensuring even and consistent testing. The system includes a digital preset counter to control the number of test cycles efficiently. To secure the test specimen, circular clips/clamps are employed, providing firm holds. The equipment utilizes a motorized geared system for controlled scuff movement and maintains accurate revolutions per minute (rpm) of the upper rotating discs using a synchronous motor.

The user-friendly electronic controls and ergonomic design make it easy to operate. Additionally, the equipment features an adjustable footrest for levelling and includes anti-vibration pads to enhance stability during testing, resulting in highly accurate and reliable test results. 

Now, let us discuss the working of a scuff resistance tester.

Conduct scuff resistance test with Presto scuff resistance tester

  • Take samples to prepare the sample accurately. Now, take the “smaller size” of the template of 48mm (provided by the machine) to mark the size on the sample. Cut the sample accurately.Scuff Tester Cut Sample
  • Prepare the sample for the lower clamp and place the testing sample on the size template.Scuff Tester Sample Uper palce
  • Place the sample on the upper clamp by uplifting the lever pin to uplift the spindle and create a specific amount of gap between the clamps.
  • Open the gripping pin and place the sample on the upper clamp.
  • Perform the same steps for placing the sample in the lower clamp.Scuff Tester Sample place
  • Once the sample is placed accurately then you can easily commence the test.Scuff tester sample

In this way, you can easily commence the test and save your material against the poor scuff strength of FMCG packaging materials.
