Equipment for Quality Control and R&D+i


Rhopoint specialist in gloss and appearance measurement. 

With Rhopoint IQ can measure the brightness at angles of 60 °, 20 °, 85 °, as well as effects of VEIL - HAZE, mirror effect - DOI ... on the same computer.

The OPTIMAP can measure Orange Peel and surface defects online or in laboratory and R & D.

It has other control equipment Resins and paints, as MFFT90 for Film Formation

Minimum Film Forming Temperature (MFFT)

The Rhopoint MFFT is the industry leading instrument for measuring the minimum film forming temperature of water based materials. Definition - “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. +

Rhopoint IQ - Goniophotometer

The Rhopoint IQ uses reflectance profiles to calculate gloss, haze and DOI values with a single button click allowing the user to fully evaluate surface finish. The Rhopoint IQ can help with the following quality issues: * Orange Peel * Raw material incompatibility * Poor dispersion * Reticulation * Additive Migration * Appearance Changes during Curing, Stoving or Drying +

Rhopoint IQ Flex

Designed for the measurement of small and curved surfaces. DOI / RIQ Meter, (quantify orange peel). Hazemeter (reflectance haze). Custom adaptors for the measurement of non-flat surfaces. +

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. +

Calibration Tiles

High, Medium, Low Gloss Calibration tiles. +

Optimap PSD Surface Texture and Defect Analysis

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. +

Novo-Shade Duo+ Reflectometer

The Novo-Shade Duo reflectometer can be used to assess either the shade of a surface (a simple indication of colour based on lightness/darkness) or calculate the opacity of a coating, plastic film or paper sample. Measuring using 0/45º the Novo-Shade Duo measures the colour of a surface and not the specular reflectance (gloss). +

Novo-Haze TX Transmission Hazemeter

Measure total transmission and haze. Complie to ASTM D1003 (CIE C). Suitable for plastic film and other transparent materials. +

Novo-Gloss Trio Glossmeter

New low cost glossmeter with 20/60/85° for all gloss applications. Rapid data transfer. Results batching with user definable names. Pass / Fail for easy identification of non conformances. +

Novo-Gloss Flex 60 Glossmeter

Measure small surface or curved areas and hard to reach surfaces. On board statistics, Bluetooth and USB data transfer. Enhanced accuracy measurement of low gloss finishes. +
