Our New Series 4 of OCCA Weekly Webinars kicks-off with "New Pioneering Technology to Objectively Evaluate Total Perception of Structured Surfaces" presented by Henrik Folkerts of BYK-Gardner.
This webinar is free to attend, simply register below and you'll receive further details & joining instructions in due course.
Uniform appearance is a crucial quality criterion for many products. The choice of material and production process variation influence the surface quality - cell size of powder coatings can be highly dependent on film thickness and curing conditions. With the change of just one material or process parameter, the visual perception of colour and appearance can change significantly.
This presentation will introduce a new portable instrument, the spectro2profiler. The device represents a major step forward for the industry because currently, the only way to check the quality of structured surface is a visual inspection. The new instrument measures colour, gloss and analyses the 3D topography of the surface texture.
