Color, gloss and grain control
Reliable color control of transparent liquids
Launched in Apri 2020, the spectro2profiler represents a major step forward for the industry because currently, the only way to check the quality of a textured powder coating surface is to carry out a visual inspection.
The new tool - which can measure color and gloss, as well as analyzing the 3D topography of the surface texture - is being hailed as a game-changer.
Experience our new technical paper explaining the benefits of standardized visual color evaluation.
Technical terms like "Correlated Color Temperature", Spectral Power Distribution” and especially "Metamerism Index Mivis" are discussed and explained with practical examples.
Find out how the quality of the daylight in a light booth is objectively rated compared to the CIE defined daylight D65.
Keep the natural look
Wood is one of the most versatile raw materials in the world. It creates a warm and comfortable atmosphere and is therefore, often used for furniture and parquet flooring. On the one hand, fresh and exciting looks are demanded by consumers; on the other hand, the natural look should still be noticeable. Due to its individual character, color and gloss measurement of wooden surfaces are a special challenge.

Visual outdoor color perception is influenced by varying environmental conditions. It is known that the sun position is dependent on the geographical location and varies from day to day and season to season.
In addition, the size of an observer, the distance to a vehicle and the mounting position of add-on parts influence the viewing angle. Many parameters need to be specified when comparing to instrumental results.
