  • It is a simple-to-use, off-line instrument that indicates relative opacity of plastic film, paper laminates, printed packaging and other materials.
  • Improves Product Quality
  • Ideal for the laboratory or plant floor
  • Controls Cost of Colorants used to achieve correct quality result for opacity
  • Meets customer opacity standards and ensure on-spec products
  • Inspect incoming film or paper products for use in secondary operations
  • Quickly match opacity to standard for rapid and accurate startup and operation of production
  • Perform competitor packaging analysis
  • Built for intuitive operation, this opacity meter is simple to use, minimizing the chance of operator error. It is small, lightweight and portable. And it features potentiometer calibration, requiring infrequent calibration, and a large digital display for easy legibility.
  • Durably constructed with metal enclosure, lid and hardware. It also features improved electronics and mechanical design.
  • Replacing the occasional bulb is a quick job, thanks to the simplified design of the easy-to-remove enclosure cover.
  • Requires removal of the power cord to achieve, for safety.
  • Indirectly traceable within each color class to the Flexible Packaging Association’s Specifications B-2. Let Gardco assist you with preparation of calibration standards, produced from samples of your material that meets in-house standards for opacity quality.
  • Helps save money on colorants, inks and other additives - among the most expensive components in the production of plastic film and other packaging materials. It will allow you to more cost-effectively evaluate, select and adjust your use of colorants. You can be sure you’re using just the right amount to meet your customers’ standards.
