Scuff Resistance Tester

PSR - 292

The phrase scuffing means the surface of an object against another object. Presto’s Scuff resistance tester is used to estimate the rub resistance of printed matters and other labels. Here, rub resistance stands for the damage takes place through rubbing. The testing instrument is used mainly in paper and packaging industries to calculate color consistency of coated or printed surfaces while rubbing.

Scuff is defined as the process of rubbing the face of one material in the face of other material. Rub resistance is the damage which has taken place through the rubbing of labels. Presto’s scuff resistance tester is used to rub the surface of two printed materials against each other at the same speed, at the same time on the same plane, under a stable rubbing pressure. In manufacturing units, the rub resistance testing instruments can be used in Paper & Packaging verticals to determine the color transfer from coated or printed surface during rubbing.
