The ASTM d Standard The ASTM d Standard December 16, Leave a Comment There are many times we receive a call from a new company from the printing industry, packaging industry, textile industry or any industry requiring to begin rub testing. We usually tell them to perform a design of experiments DOE using the information listed below. In the field of Quality Control and Engineering practices within a laboratory setting, rub testing is performed to test paper and other materials to withstand normal use conditions, simulating conditions subjected to.
As an example, when it comes to medical and pharmaceutical labeling abrasion can happen during shipping, handling, or storage. These labels contain critical dosage, and operating information. This practice is applicable to labels, folding cartons, corrugated boxes, inserts, circulars, and other packaging materials having applied graphics on a flat substrate. The two samples are then rubbed against one another at a controlled speed for a predetermined number of cycles.
Once the rubbing stops, the samples are visually inspected to see if the ink has worn off or not. This helps to determine if printing is durable enough to withstand a typical handling and transportation environment. The test is able to simulate human handling and use as well as continual use.
