Tech/Engineering - Printing & Publishing / Offset printing
German term or phrase: rupffest
Context:
Brochure on printing, describing various inks and printing methods and their applications.

Sentence:
"Druckfarben für den Offsetdruck erfordern einen Bedruckstoff mit einer rupffesten Oberfläche."

What has me stumped is the adj. "rupffest"
"Pluck resistant" surface? Does that make sense to those of you in the printing industry?

Any help greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
James
