Trend analysis graph
Single button push to make measurements.
|Shade of paints, inks and coatings|
|Chalking of paint|
|Efficiency of detergents and bleaching agents|
|Whiteness of recycled paper|
Fast measurement of all parameters
Automatic calculation of cleanliness
Clear tape is pressed on the measurement surface, torn away
and stuck onto white paper - For reference a clean piece of
tape is also stuck on the same white paper.
Measurements are made of the reference material and then of
the tape, cleanliness is calculated automatically.
Cleanliness and oxidisation on metal surfaces
Fast neasurement of all parameters
Automatic calculation of opacity
Measurements are made over a white substrate and then over a black substrate. Opacity is automatically calculated and displayed.
|Hiding power of paints, inks and coatings|
|Transparency of plastic film|
|Opacity of paper|
