Standard Test Method for Apparent Tack of Printing Inks and Vehicles by a Three-Roller Tackmeter
|Publication Date:||1 July 2009|
|ICS Code (Inks. Printing inks):||87.080|
This test method covers the procedure for determining the apparent tack of printing inks using a three-roller tackmeter.
This test method is applicable to all paste-type printing inks and vehicles that are essentially nonvolatile under ordinary room conditions, provided that any elastomer covered rollers in the tackmeter are resistant to attack by the particular ink or vehicle chemistry. Different elastomers may be required for different ink or vehicle chemistries.
This test method covers three-roller tackmeters of two different geometries, referred to as Geometry A and Geometry B.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
