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.
