The Digital Ink Rub Tester is designed to measure scuffing or rubbing resistance. Several tests can be performed including dry rub - the amount of transfer ink from one dry surface to another, wet rub - the amount of transfer of ink from one wetted surface to another, wet bleed or transfer ink transfer to a water-saturated blotter, wet smear similar to wet bleed with the addition of rub cycles, functinoal rub/wet rub -smear or transfer tests using a liquid other than water and hot abrasion. An optional heated weight provides a uniform test for evaluating hot abrasion resistance of printed cartons, labels, etc.
