The scuff tester is an instrument which is used to test or determine the transfer of color from printed or coated material against rubbing. This equipment is widely used to check color transfer when one surface is rubbed against other. Scuff Resistance testers are designed as per standards such as ASTM F2497-05, BS 3110:1959. The scuff tester is also used to evaluate the rub resistance of prints on board or paper. The instrument can also be used to determine color transfer from coated or printed surface during rubbing.
The durability of polished, printed, or painted surfaces to resist scratch can be simulated by a scuff tester. The Scuff tester consists of a motorized assembly and a plunger arrangement to keep two samples facing each other.
Owing to continuous friction of samples, scuffing process is initiated. Once the test is finished, samples are taken for observation. Scuff testers are widely used in packaging industries for testing the scuffing of printed materials. The scuff tester can determine the effects of contact by materials, items, or humans by the use of single or dual surface scratch methods.
High Adoption of Scuff Testers in the Packaging Industry
There is wide adoption of the scuff testers in packaging industry as label on packages carry important information about the content inside. A manufacturer can’t afford to keep a misprinted or scuffed label on the products. Scuffing of the labels results in fading of the print owing to abrasion of paper and film.
The importance of the scuff tester is rising also in the field of packaged bottles, the purpose of the scuff tester is to simulate the vibration, rub, and pressure that takes place during packaging of bottles.
