Testing Solutions for Color Harmony and Surface Texture
Handheld & Benchtop Spectrophotometer – Light Booths – Liquid Color Meter


AkzoNobel and BYK-Gardner digitize surface texture for powder coatings

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.

Color Measurement of Wood Coatings

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.
