Dear customers,


An unusual year with unexpected turns in both personal and business life is entering its final round.

In order to keep up to date in the world of quality control of color, gloss and physical properties, we have put together new information and activities for you on our website.

This should not be without an end-of-year rally for the exchange of old equipment.

BYK-Gardner 60 Minutes

Online Education Program

As a leader in color, appearance and physical test solutions we are always striving to improve our knowledge offering. During this time of COVID-19 and with most people working from home there was a new need to increase online education and support programs. Out of this need added topics to our 60 Minutes WEBseminar Series.

Participants were encouraged to log questions, comments or challenges in our Q&A section, which were then read aloud, answered and discussed. From the beginning of this program, we have had amazing attendance, dialog and feedback.

AkzoNobel and BYK-Gardner digitize surface texture for powder coatings

Launched on April 10, 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. 

How Colors are created! Blue and Yellow does not make GREEN!??

The world is colorful. But how are colors actually created? Surely, do you all remember mixing watercolors, by mixing for example Blue and Yellow you were able to create Green. In the following, you can read about surprising experiments on color mixing, where mixing Blue and Yellow will actually result in White. A simple experiment, which you can also repeat at home.
