Opacity Meter Model RT-6000

Quick, Easy Measurement of Relative Opacity for Film and Packaging Products

Ideal for the laboratory or plant floor, the Opacity Meter model RT-6000 is a simple to use, off line instrument that indicates relative opacity of plastic film,paper, laminates, printed packaging and other materials. With a single pass of the light source through your material, the system measures relative light transmission on a scale of 0 to 100 Opacity Units, representing perfectly transparent to purely opaque materials, respectively.

Opacity Meter model RT-6000 Improves Product Quality, Controls Cost of Colorants

The RT-6000 Opacity Meter is an invaluable quality-control tool that will help you:

  • Meet customer opacity standards and ensure on spec products
  • Inspect incoming film or paper products for use in secondary operations
  • Quickly match opacity to standard for rapid and accurate startup and operation of production
  • Perform competitor packaging analysis

As it helps you control opacity quality, the RT-6000 also saves you money on colorants, inks and other additives - among the most expensive components in the production of plastic film and other packaging materials. The RT-6000 Opacity Meter will allow you to more cost-effectively evaluate, select and adjust your use of colorants. You can be sure you're using just the right amount to meet your customers' standards.
