For testing the surface tension
To determine the cleanliness of surfaces

Test inks can be used to determine the surface tension of solids made
of plastic, metal, glass, ceramics and others.
The adhesion possibility of the surfaces in particular for printing, bonding and painting should also be determined based on the wetting pattern .

The surface tension is determined by applying a stroke of ink measuring just a few centimetres in length to the surfaces to be evaluated and observing the behaviour of the stroke of ink.
