PROFILE/Plus® Roughness & Porosity

Automated paper roughness and porosity measurement

Achieving uniform ink coverage is essential to high-quality printing, and can only be achieved with a uniform paper surface.  The PROFILE/Plus® Roughness & Porosity makes it possible to meet this demand with accurate measurements to help control paper roughness.

  • Efficiency – The average seven-second testing process provides quick measurement response and accuracy.

  • Versatility – It is the only standalone roughness tester that offers you built-in paper feed and your choice of porosity and two-sided roughness measurement simultaneously.

  • Unique calibration – Its dummy head system allows for fast and easy flow verification.

  • Configurable – The instruments can be equipped to measure either Sheffield or Bendtsen Roughness and a variety of Porosity reporting units.

Meets the following industry standards:

TAPPI Test Method T460, T536, T538
