Rhopoint IQ Flex20

Rhopoint IQ Flex20

The Rhopoint IQ Flex 20 quantifies surface quality problems such as orange and peel and haze that are invisible to a standard glossmeter and profiles how light is reflected from a surface.
Previously only available for measuring flat surfaces, this technology is now available in a new format specifically designed for curved surfaces and small & delicate parts.
This incredibly advanced instrument measures:
20° GLOSS • HAZE• REFLECTED IMAGE QUALITY (RIQ) • DISTINCTNESS OF IMAGE (DOI) • RSPEC

This incredibly advanced instrument measures:
60° GLOSS • HAZE• DISTINCTNESS OF IMAGE (DOI) • REFLECTED IMAGE QUALITY (RIQ) • RSPEC



Rhopoint IQ ( Goniophotometer) 20°/60°/85°

Rhopoint IQ ( Goniophotometer) 20°/60°/85°

The Rhopoint IQ quantifies surface quality problems that are invisible to a standard glossmeter and profiles how light is reflected from a surface.
This incredibly advanced instrument measures: 20/60/85° GLOSS, HAZE, REFLECTED IMAGE QUALITY (RIQ), DISTINCTNESS OF IMAGE (DOI), RSPEC
In practice, these terms mean:
Gloss: A measurement proportional to the amount of light reflected from a surface measured at 20° (high gloss) , 60° (mid gloss) and 85° (matt finishes)
Haze: An optical effect caused by microscopic textures or residue on a surface.
RIQ : Used to quantify effects such as orange peel and surface waviness. This new parameter gives higher resolution results compared to Distinctness of Image (DOI) measurement and better mimics human perception of surface texture, especially on high quality finishes such as automotive.
DOI: A measure of how clearly a reflected image will appear in a reflective surface.
RSPEC: The peak gloss value over a very narrow angle.

Optimap PSD

Optimap PSD

The new Optimap™ marks a revolution in the control of surface quality. For the first time subjective visual assessment can be replaced with reliable, representative measurement.
The Optimap™ is the first portable instrument to map and measure surface texture.
Surface texture is used to quantify visible faults such as orange peel, waviness and DOI problems. It can also be used to identify local faults such as inclusions, pinholes, runs, sags, blisters etc.
In a single fast operation the Optimap™ maps the topography of a test surface displaying faults and texture in incredible detail. Mapped information is processed into objective surface measurements that can be used to effectively control product quality.



Novo-Curve Glossmeter

Novo-Curve Glossmeter

The Novo-Curve is a unique instrument with specially designed optics for accurately measuring curved surfaces and small areas. It can also be used to measure flat surfaces and areas which are too small to measure with standard glossmeters.
With built in statistical analysis and the ability to download results to a PC the instrument has all the features you will ever need for fast accurate curved surface gloss measurement.

Minimum Film Forming Temperature (MFFT)

Minimum Film Forming Temperature (MFFT)

MFFT is the lowest temperature at which a latex, emulsion or adhesive will uniformly coalesce when laid on a substrate as a thin film. An accurate MFFT value allows the formulation of products that cure correctly under specified application conditions.
The standard test for determining this temperature involves using a MFFT-BAR, as specified by such standards as ASTM D 2354 and ISO 2115. The design of the Rhopoint instrument is based directly on these standards
