Parker Print Surf Tester (PPS)



Developed from Dr. John Parker's original method, the Parker Print-Surf (PPS) is designed to accurately measure the surface roughness of sheet materials under conditions similar to those experienced during the printing process.

The sample is clamped between a precision engineered measuring head and a specifically designed backing assembly. It provides the information you need to avoid time-consuming, costly printing problems.
