Measuring device to measure the dimension stability of paper/board and films under influence of heat (heat shrinkage). The HSA Heat Shrinkage Analyzer helps to predict the converting properties of paper/liner board/films regarding their dimension stability under thermal load of up to approx. 230°C.
The device can mainly be used to evaluate and predict the printability of laser print and copy paper (for professional applications). Besides these, the accuracy of fit in case of laser, offset and gravure printing can be optimized and problems with the stacking of paper in professional copy machines, laser printers and offset printing machines can be avoided. Also pre-impregnates, OPP films, wall papers and special filter papers can be measured.
