haze-gard i: an innovative view on transmission, haze and clarity from BYK

03 December 2014

BYK-Gardner has introduced a new haze meter to simultaneously measure total transmission, haze and clarity according to ASTM and ISO test methods: the haze-gard i.
The measurement of Total Transmittance and Transmission Haze is specified in two international test methods. ASTM D1003 requires illuminants C and A, using the non-compensated method. In contrast to this, ISO 13468 asks for readings taken under D65 with a compensated method. The new haze-gard i simultaneously displays results for both test methods.
For precision and reliability the haze-gard i uses high performance LED technology. Reference beam, self-diagnosis, automatic long-term calibration and 10 year warranty on the lamp life make the instrument operator friendly and safe for many years.
Its open design lets you work freely to analyse any sample size. A versatile sample holder for films and sheets is now part of the standard delivery content and optional sample holders for taber abrasion test and cuvettes for liquids are available. To ensure the highest flexibility the instrument can be set-up in a horizontal or vertical position.
