We have practical solutions
You can have a wide range of tests carried out on your consumables and print products, as well as investigations into the curing of UV prints. We find causes and solutions for problems that have occurred. In addition to quality assurance tests, Fogra offers assistance at any time in the event of damage.
Residual strength of heatset papers
In combination with the embrittlement of the paper due to heatset drying, the mechanical stresses during folding lead to a significant reduction in strength properties. This can lead to breaking of the fold. It is often noticed too late when individual pages of the finished printed product are torn out of a staple or thread binding.
Our paper laboratory offers a variety of standard tests for the determination of paper characteristics. These include grammage, thickness, volume, opacity, colour, whiteness, gloss, roughness, air permeability, water absorption, bending stiffness and many more.
Regardless of whether you want to have a material tested by us or have a damage case assessed by Fogra, we will be happy to help you. The easiest way is to contact us by telephone or email with your request and we will discuss the procedure together.
It can also be advantageous, particularly in the case of damage investigations, if you first send us some samples for a non-binding and rough examination.
