Uniform appearance is an important Quality criterion of multi-component products which are made by various suppliers. The appearance of opaque products is described by terms such as gloss, distinctness of image, orange peel, haze and mottling, while transparent materials are characterized by their transmission properties being total transmittance, transmission haze and clarity. BYK-Gardner offers objective measurement solutions to guarantee reliable quality control:Portable gloss meters to test surface reflection Orange peel and DOI meters for waviness and brilliance control Mottling meter to evaluate mottling of effect finishes Haze meters to control transmission properties.

Orange Peel / DOI Meters

Color harmony has a Major influence on the impact of perceptual quality on a product and thus, plays a key role in the purchasing decision. For objective color control solid colors are measured by single angle spectrophotometers whereas effect finishes require multi-angle spectrophotometers that simulate different viewing angles and lighting conditions. For visual color assessment use of a light booth allows to see what the product will look like under different lighting conditions in a controlled environment. Color of transparent liquids can quickly be evaluated with visual color comparators or objectively measured by reliable spectrophotometers.

Mottling Meter

To properly evaluate coatings and inks tools are needed to drawdown a wet film onto a consist substrate. BYK-Gardner offers a large selection of applicator bars, frames, and wire-wound rods. To improve the consistency of a drawdown several automatic film applicators are available. For a consistent substrate, our byko-chart line of drawdown cards are listed to check for opacity, color, gloss, and film properties. Specialty substrates like black glass and accessory items that include vacuum plates and pumps are available. Applicator bars to assess sag and leveling properties are in this category.
