haze-gard i: The objective standard for a clear view
Transparent products can have a milky or fuzzy appearance dependent on their light scattering behavior. The haze-gard i quantifies the visual perception with objective measurement criteria:
The open measurement compartment let’s you work freely to analyze any sample size. Quickly change and position small and large samples.
Dependent on the sample material we designed various sample holders for thin films, sheets, liquids, taber abraded samples which can be easily mounted on the pre-installed track.
The innovative lighting of the haze-gard i using a long-term stable LED allows measurement without any influence of ambient light.
To guarantee your final product is within specs, it is best to control already the raw materials. Find out how a standardized sample preparation will give you repeatable and reliable results.
Horizontal or vertical set-up: sample handling in any position is convenient and allows you highest flexibility. The large touch display is designed to be intuitive and easy to use for any task, including statistics and colorful Pass/Fail analysis. A dedicated measurement button and foot switch allow fast and even hands-free operation.
The haze-gard i controls complete transparency according to international standard methods and displays all results simultaneously - well prepared for any customer specification:

Data transfer can be performed via cable with USB-port or data saving on USB-stick and even a LAN connection is available for further analysis in your own LIMS system.
smart-lab Haze software professionally analyzes the data for you:
Do you need to check abrasion resistance of your products?
Here you find an example for haze measurement using a Taber abrader or a windshield wiper for automotive glasses.
The haze-gard i comes with a precision guide carriage which allows easy replacement of different holders. Various sample holders are available for sheets, films or very thin films. Additional options are a holder for taber abrasion test and a cuvette table for measurement of liquids. Even customized sample holders can be easily attached.
