The AlphaTack Plus instrument allows quick tack determination of printing inks with a high degree of accuracy and reproducibility. Due to its closely controlled test conditions the AlphaTack Plus methodology offers significant advantages over the usual tack testing methods.
The AlphaTack Plus provides a problem-solving approach to measuring pure tack (QC), ink length, tack stability vs. time, vs. temperature, vs. lineforce and offers a practical and consistent solution to commonly encountered problems of splitting ink films.
- Quick and accurate tack value determination of printing inks in QC and R&D
- Tack stability tests vs Temperature
- Tack stability tests vs Time
- Determination of ink splitting, classification of long and short splitting inks
- Applications for engineering in print houses
- Reference instrument due to excellent short and long term stability
