In the paper and packaging industry, testing the abrasion resistance properties of different packaging materials like printed labels, packaging films and many more is an important part of quality control. This is because these printed materials provide essential information about the product packaging. Thus, it is important for you to test the quality of these packaging materials against scuffing to ensure that accurate products will be delivered to the customers. Presto scuff resistance tester works well to test the quality of material against scuffing and abrasion. This quality testing equipment has been designed to evaluate the print quality of materials on a substrate.

It has been designed as per industry standards that include ASTM F2497-05, BS 3110:1959. This will ensure the accuracy and reliability of lab testing results. In this blog, we will discuss brief information about the Presto scuff resistance tester NXG model and how this quality testing equipment can make it easy for manufacturers to conduct scuff resistance tests on the materials.

Importance of testing the durability of packaging materials

Abrasion is considered to be the process of wearing down materials due to rough handling and transportation. This parameter of quality control will not only affect the quality of materials but also leads to high product rejection rates. Thus, by testing the durability of packaging materials against scuffing, manufacturers can save their products from getting damaged.

Presto being Asia’s No.1 manufacturer of lab testing instruments has designed high-quality testing equipment known as a scuff tester for packaging materials. With the use of this quality testing equipment, manufacturers can easily get ensured the integrity of printed labels and deliver quality products to customers.

Now, let us discuss brief information about the Presto scuff resistance tester.

All about Presto scuff resistance tester

Testing for scuff resistance is an important step in the production process. Scuffs and scratches can happen during the shipping, handling, and storage of products. To ensure that your packaging will withstand the test of time, it's best to take steps early in the design process with a Scuff Resistance Test (SRT).

This highly advanced NXG model of Presto scuff resistance tester has been designed to test the quality of materials against scuffing. Besides this, the Presto Scuff Resistance Tester is designed for hassle-free installation and requires minimal ongoing maintenance. This user-friendly design ensures that operators can set up and maintain the machine with ease, saving valuable time and resources.

By subjecting the printed materials to rigorous testing, the machine helps identify potential flaws and defects early in the production process. This proactive approach significantly reduces the chances of defective products reaching customers.
