The durability of printed, painted, or polished services to resist abrasion can be simulated by a scuffed test procedure. This procedure can simulate the effects of human use in continuous contact or dual surface abrasion a variety of types.
Label legibility is very important on pharmaceutical and medical devices and is often tested by means of a Southerland Rub test or similar. The durability of printed information on keypads, for example, can also be determined by a similar procedure.
Scuff testing can take a variety of forms but it is almost always a relatively simple and inexpensive procedure to conduct. For abrasive products, it is often common to determine the effect of the abrasive material on intended products or package system components.
Westpak continually upgrades and expands its equipment line-up. Therefore this list is a minimum of our capabilities:
A wide variety of scuff equipment and test setups are available at each Westpak location including Sutherland Rub Testers and custom built devices.
