Tests rub resistance of printed material, folding cartons and wrappers

The automated IGT Sutherland Ink Rub Tester rubs a test strip under a specified pressure, speed and temperature, over a printed area, to determine the resistance of the print to abrasion.

Damage from abrasion can happen during transport, storage, handling or use, resulting in a deterioration of images and readability.
