NEW Rotational Viscometer: byko-visc RT

Viscosity is an important material property which needs to be specified and controlled to optimize how a liquid flows, spreads, or levels under certain conditions.

The byko-visc RT is available as a standard and lite version with models for low, medium or high sensitivity to cover a wide range of applications and versatility in data analysis.

In the design and operation, we paid attention to the detail to ensure highest precision, easy handling and a first-class user experience.

Quality Requirements for Architectural Paint

Architectural coatings are available in a multitude of colors and shades. We can select among various shades of whites, a range of pastel colors or high chromatic colors to fulfill everybody’s taste. The coating should be easy to apply without dripping, cover the substrate on the first application, be super resistant to abrasion or scrubbing and of course be long term durable without fading over time despite being exposed to wind, rain and sunshine.

In the following articles you will find valuable tips how to objectively evaluate color strength, opacity (hiding power), touch-up performance, abrasion resistance, and even predict lightfastness with new spectro2guide.

Find out more about the quality control of architectural paints.

Our eyes are part of the drinking experience

Not only the flavor of the coffee beans, but also the color of the coffee cup has a high influence on our coffee drinking experience.

Our brain associates the cup color with a specific taste being sweet or bitter and having a certain degree of acidity. For example, the more the cup color emphasizes the brown of the coffee, the more bitter we perceive it to be.

In this way, you can adjust the color and appearance of your car at any time to suit the occasion and your own mood – amazing!

Read here how the taste of coffee changes depending on whether you use a white, yellow, green, blue, brown or light pink cup.
