Testing Machines Inc. Digital Ink Rub Tester 10-20

The Digital Ink Rub Tester manufactured by Testing Machines Inc conforms to ASTM D5264 and is designed to measure scuffing or ink rub resistance.


The Digital Ink Rub Tester using ASTM D5264 and is designed to measure scuffing or ink rub resistance.

Several tests can be performed including dry rub (the amount of transfer ink from one dry surface to another), wet rub (the amount of transfer of ink from wetted surface to another), wet bleed or transfer (ink transfer to a water-saturated blotter), wet smear (similar to wet bleed with the addition or rub cycles), functional rub/wet rub (smear or transfer tests using a liquid other than water and hot abrasion).

An optional heated weight provides the 10-20 Rub Resistance Tester with a uniform test for evaluating hot abrasion resistance of printed materials like fabric, plastics.

Scuff resistance

Scuff resistance refers to a material’s ability to withstand surface damage or marking when subjected to frictional forces or contact with other surfaces during everyday use.

It measures the capacity of a material to resist marks, abrasions, or superficial damage caused by rubbing, scraping, or contact with another object or surface, often indicating its durability and resilience in maintaining its appearance over time against such interactions.

Materials with high scuff resistance tend to retain their original appearance and structural integrity despite repeated friction or contact. Testing scuff resistance involves assessing how well a material withstands these surface interactions without visible damage or alteration.

The Problem

Industrial processes are often energy heavy, expensive and harmful to the planet. Sadly, many companies don’t appreciate how easily they can optimize their operational efficiency.    

The Solution

If you use industrial powder coating ovens then Industrial Physics can empower you to better understand your energy use with tools like the TQC Sheen CurveX temperature data-logger 

The Result

Learn how our aluminium profiling customer managed to cut their energy use by a third, slashing costs and helping them to offer a more sustainable service in the process.
