Finding numbers for sparkle and shine
At present, only complex research instruments can accurately characterise the appearance of effect coatings. A new multi-angle portable spectrophotometer incorporates detectors which are out of theplane of illumination and reflection. This complex data is simplified mathematically, so that overall colour tolerance limits can be set which take into account the appearance of a coating from allangles. more
