Additional information


The Digital Ink Rub Tester using ASTM D 5264 and is designed to measure scuffing or ink rub 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 wetted surface to another), wet bleed or transfer (ink transfer to a water-saturated blotter), wet smear (similar to wet bleed with the addition or rub cycles), functional rub/wet rub (smear or transfer tests using a liquid other than water and hot abrasion). An optional heated weight provides the 10-20 Rub Resistance Tester with a uniform test for evaluating hot abrasion resistance of printed materials like fabric, plastics.
