Test kits available for AIC2-5T2000, AIC2-5, Amsterdam and GST2.

The printability of paper in gravure printing depends on several properties of the paper. This includes, the condition of the surface,n dynamic compressibility, wet-ability and porosity. Measurement of only one of these physical characteristics does not enable predictions about printability.

The Helio test, which integrates all these parameters and is used for forecasting printability, even with papers of similar properties. Can be used on all grades of gravure printing paper.
