Unique portable spectrophotometer

14 October 2013

BYK-Gardner has introduced a new instrument to objectively detect and quantify fluorescent light excited in the visible range: the BYK-mac i. It is equipped with additional out-of-plane sensors that measure the fluorescent light in clearly defined wavelength ranges.
To quantify the fluorescent light, it calculates a new index known as the ‘Intensity Emission value’, which can be used as a preliminary indicator for light fastness.
Due to the highly stable LED illumination fluorescent colours can now be measured repeatably with one BYK-mac (no warm-up time, no temperature drift) and reproducible from BYK-mac to BYK-mac (no lamp ageing). This allows usage of digital standards among the complete supply chain – the key to global colour QC management.
