    Lloyds laboratory Rub Resistance Tester is a tool for comparing the rubbing, scuffing and marking of inks and coatings on commercial print and packaging. It can be used as a part of quality control in a production environment or an aid to development in the laboratory. Modern papers and carton boards can prove a challenge for inks and coatings. Harsh substrates such as matt paper and recycled board are prone to marking, scuffing and rubbing during post print production and transportation.The Ink Rub Resistance Tester is designed to determine the quality of adhesion, and scuff resistance of ink to paper surfaces, plastic and aluminium film. The motorised unit is simple to operate by entering the number of rubs in the preset counter and starting the unit. It will rub the sample until the pre-set value is achieved. Dry and Wet rub can be performed on the Ink Rub Resistance Tester. The method of operation is that a 2 or 4 Lb weight with a clean white board is swept across the test piece for a set number of times, then closely examined. The washability and resistance to fat, oils and detergents of inks and coatings can also be tested. This tester allows the user to visually compare the performance of different batches of production, ink/varnish formulations or substrates under the same abrasive conditions.

    Item Code92SAV-SC2

    Lloyds Research has developed the 3rd generation of Ink-O-Scope 92SAV-SC2 for the in-depth evaluation of your ink formulation and its dynamic behavior on presscondition and making a sense of tack dynamically rather than just an arbitrary tack number.Tack is not a static rheological property of an ink or vehicle. It depends on the formulation, applied dynamic conditions like temperatures, stress, speed and time. Allthese parameters may vary on printing presses, so it's important to know how strong several factors may influence the ink tack behaviors and in consequence the quality of ink under different practical conditions. Tack dynamic behavior analysis is used by ink makers and users to ensure the quality and consistency of the inks andits formulations. Because of the high repeatability and reproducibility of the tack results, Lloyds Ink-O-Scope is an essential instrument used by many companies that operate on an international level with data exchange between various facilities to ensure homogeneous quality throughout the facilities.

    Features:
    • Design confirms to ASTM D 4361
    • Very high accuracy and 100% reproducible results
    • Ergonomically designed with easy cleaning.
    • Negligible and Minimal Maintenance
    • Individual display of all programmable test parameters
    • Dedicated hi-speed electronics and communication
    • Tackoware® software (optional) for graphical online presentation, data interchange and
    • comparisons of infinite results
    • Easy DIY digital calibration by simple dead- weight method and not by varnishes or ink.
    • Rubber rollers available for conventional or UV curing inks.

    Specification:

    Tack Measurement in three independent simultaneous scales:

    1. 0-50 gm-mtr (Inkometer-ASTM)
    2. 0-600 (Europe,Tack-O-Scope)

                Lloyds automatic Ink Water Emulsification Tester produces accurate, repeatable water pickup test for lithographic materials and is the instrument specified in ASTM D4942. It is an automated programmable device employing a rotating set of mixer blade and a rotating ink sample beaker, ideally suited for water/fount-solution emulsification testing of printing ink and varnish for consistent performance on offset printing presses.The transfer of the dampening solution to the ink surface on the plate and ink form rollers is inherent in the printing process and the major weakness of lithography. If dampening solution, revolution by revolution, accumulates on the ink surfaces, it will interfere with and eventually prevent the critical ink transfer. This dampening solution can only be removed by emulsification into the ink. Therefore, lithography depends on the ink’s ability to emulsify the dampening solution which during the process, is unavoidably applied to the plate surface. The medium which is printed on the substrate is not the ink as was applied to the press but an emulsion of aqueous dampening solution in the continuous hydrophobic phase.

Harsh substrates such as matt paper and recycled board are prone to marking, scuffing and rubbing during post print production and transportation. The Rub Tester allows the user to compare the durability of printed cartons, commercial print or proofs of ink and varnish on a wide range of substrates. The tester uses a rotary motion to abrade the printed surface against virgin material, face to face against itself or to a reference material. The user can vary the abrasion force or number of cycles to adjust the severity of the test. The washability and resistance to fat, oils and detergents of inks and coatings can also be tested. This tester allows the user to visually compare the performance of different batches of production, ink/varnish formulations or substrates under the same abrasive conditions

                • Select the suitable cup as flow times
                • Ensure the cup and the test fluids are at the required temperature.
                • Ensure no bubbles or debris are in the test fluid.
                • Seal the cup orifice (with fingers) and fill with test fluid, level the top of the fluid with a scrapper.
                • BREAK-POINT procedure- remove finger from the orifice and simultaneously the timer starts automatically and at the first break in flow stops the timer.
                • The elapsed time represent the ‘Flowtime’ of the test fluid.

                Specifications:
                • Suitable for use with all International specification flow cups (customized adapters may be required)

                Design MeetsASTM D4040
                Viscosity Range from10 - 1000 poise
                Time Least Count0.01 seconds
                Item Code92N

                Instrument used to measure the viscosity of range offluids from liquid to viscous materials. A sturdyinstrument suitable for day to day industrial usage.A very popular instrument used in the field of Printinginks manufacturing. This instrument measures theviscosity by Laray method, wherein the time taken isrecorded for the sample under test to travel a fix distanceunder different stress condition and these time resultsare further converted using various calculation methodto Viscosity results.The Viscosity results are achieved either by LloydsViscosoft Software® or by graphical method using predrawnresults on the graph sheet.Featuring advanced microprocessor based electronic with infrared control. Lloyds Laray Viscometer provides thehighest accuracy and efficiency for research and development, quality control and process evaluation. A mostimportant instrument used in the manufacturing of high quality printing inks and varnishes to control viscosity andyield values at various stages of production, and accurate quality control of production batches without any chancesof rejection or reworking.

                Features:
                • Very high reproducible results
                • Glass rod for low viscosity fluids e.g. newsink
                • Water-jacket around the Orifice for accurate controlling of the test temperature
                • Sturdy design in full stainless Steel
