AkzoNobel and BYK-Gardner digitize surface texture for powder coatings


Launched on April 10 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.


Quality Control Rally


Trade-in your old color meter for the best performing spectro2guide - the revolution in color measurement with prediction of color stability.


Trade-in value: € 2300,- / $ 2700,-


  • Balanced design with large color touch display and a live preview of measurement spot
  • Docking station houses test standards for auto diagnosis
  • Unsurpassed technical performance: Short & long term stable with top temperature stability and excellent inter-instrument agreement
  • Digital standards are reality – no extra cost for close-tolerance set-up
  • Built-in fluorimeter predicts color stability (light fastness)
  • Professional data analysis software, smart-chart – all included!

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.

BYK-Gardner "60 Minutes":


WEBseminar: NEW control of color, gloss and grain


Our visual perception sees color, gloss, and surface topography together. Grain or surface texture could only be judged visually - upto now.

The new spectro2profiler measures color, gloss and grain with one measurement to objectively analyze total color and appearance harmony.

NEW Color, gloss and 3D structure measurement: LIVE analysis

Color and gloss measurement are not sufficient to guarantee uniform quality! spectro2profiler additionally evaluates surface.

3D structure parameters: Structure cell size and amplitude height are essential information for grain/texture definition and most helpful in the selection process of potential part suppliers.

2D gloss measurement: The reflection of structure hills is compared to the reflection of the valleys - a key quality criterion to determine the mold wear.
