IGT Sutherland Ink Rub Tester
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.
The degree of rub is influenced by the properties and combinations of ink, substrate, spray powder, varnish and dampening liquid. Exploring rub resistance is vital to printers, converters and manufacturers of inks and substrates
