Testing Equipment for Color, Paint & Coatings - Colour Test Instruments - Haze-Gard Plus / Dual - Transparency Meter

Haze-Gard Plus / Dual - Transparency Meter

The appearance of a transparent product is defined by its application. Packaging film used in the food industry should be very clear and transparent, while film for grocery bags should be translucent and diffuse the light. Therefore, different raw materials are selected and processed under certain conditions. The absorption and scattering behavior of the transparent specimen will determine how much light will pass through and how objects will appear through the transparent product.

Testing Equipment for Color, Paint & Coatings - Colour Test Instruments - Pendulum Hardness Tester

Pendulum Hardness Tester

This method evaluates hardness by measuring the damping time of an oscillating pendulum. The pendulum rests with 2 stainless steel balls on the coating surface. A physical relationship exists between oscillation time, amplitude and the geometric dimensions of the pendulum. The viscoelastic behavior of the coating determines its hardness.

Testing Equipment for Color, Paint & Coatings - Colour Test Instruments - Automatic Film Applicators

Automatic Film Applicators

Drawdowns made by hand can show irregularities caused by variations in speed and pressure on the applicator tool. The quality of the drawdown will be dependent on the shear rate and the weight on the applicator. Measurements of film properties such as abrasion resistance, hiding power and gloss are greatly affected by the application quality.
