Product Info

Scuff Resistance Tester offered by Pacorr is the instrument that is used for testing the impact of rubbing on materials when they are rubbed against each other. In different industries, the packages are stored in a very sturdy manner. Additionally, the transportation process for the packages is so sturdy that can cause the packages to rub against each other. This can cause the defacing of the product packaging. Also it can cause extensive damage to the packaging of the products.






    This is why the manufacturers of the packaging materials need to assess the quality of the materials before they are used for packaging of different products. The materials need to be tested by subjecting them to the exact conditions which they will be facing during actual usage. The scuff resistance tester manufacturers and suppliers provide the machine that helps the manufacturers in testing the resistance that is offered by a material against rubbing damage when they are rubbed against each other. This helps in assessment of the printing quality of the packaging materials as well as the quality materials as well. The instrument is best for testing printed labels, printed cardboard boxes, corrugated boxes, tapes and other packaging materials. The digital display of the equipment is apt for accurate reading of the test results. The instrument is designed and manufactured according to the standards that have been prescribed in the ASTM standards.

    Pacorr offers the most accurate scuff resistance tester that are used mostly in the packaging industries for testing the impact of the scuffing on the packaging materials such as packaging boxes, printed labels, and so forth. Scuffing is the process of rubbing of two surfaces against each other. When the packaging boxes are stored and transported, then the packaging labels and containers are rubbed against each other. This can damage the surface of the labels and also can damage the print quality of the labels as well. This is why it is important for the manufacturers need to ensure that the print quality of the packaging materials is so good that it does not get damaged during transportation and storage. The scuff resistance tester manufacturers and suppliers offer an efficient machine which simulates the rubbing conditions that are faced by the packaging materials during transportation. The instrument offered by Pacorr is designed in lines with the standards prescribed by ASTM and hence gives the most accurate testing results for the manufacturers to ensure the best quality of the products. The specimens are placed between the clamps and the strokes are simulated to replicated the actual rubbing conditions. The numbers of strokes that cause distortion in the surface of the material being tested are counted. The instrument also helps in testing rupture of the surface as well. The digital display on the instrument gives the actual number of strokes that have been applied on the test samples. This helps the manufacturers in determining the actual number of rubbing strokes that are needed for defacing of the materials and hence better quality control can be attained for those packaging materials.

    What does scuffing means?

    Scuffing is the process of deterioration of the surface of the materials when they are rubbed against each other or other rough surface. When the packaging containers have a relative motion and are rubbed against each other then it causes deterioration of surface. This is called scuffing.

    IS there any standard for sample preparation for the test?

    Yes. The test samples need to be prepared according to the standards set by the authorities so that the test results are accurate every time. With Pacorr’s Scuff resistance tester, there are provided three templates for sample preparation.

    How is scuffing calculated with the machine?

    The samples are clamped on the instruments and then there is a relative rotating motion introduced to the samples. The number of rotations is counted by the counter on the machine. After a specific number of rotations, the sample is taken out and studied for the scuffing effect. This gives the scuffing resistance of the sample material.

    How the weight is exerted on the samples during tests?

    There are two separate dead weights provided with the machine that are 1 psi + 1 psi that are used for exerting weight on the samples during testing procedures.

    Is there an auto-stop feature in the machine?

    Yes. You can preset the number of rotation in the digital preset counter so that the machine stops the test process once the number of rotations reaches the preset number.
