Gardner Color Standards & Oil Color Standards

ASTM D1544 & ASTM D6166, ASTM D1500 & ISO 2069

Comparator 2000

Two of the more common color measurement applications accommodated by the Lovibond® AF334 Comparator System 2000+ are Gardner and ASTM Color. The Gardner package provides results according to ASTM D1544-68 (74 reapproved). The Abbreviated ASTM D1500 Oil scale provides a single disc which has ASTM D1500 values of 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, 5.0.

The Comparator includes an integral prism which causes the sample and comparison fields to overlap, allowing enhanced discrimination and matching. The prism is ultrasonically sealed to prevent contamination of the optics.

An adjustable sample cell compartment can be altered in seconds to allow for any cell with a path length from 1mm to 40mm. There are over 400 Lovibond discs available. The Lovibond® Comparator System 2000+ provides a versatile and accurate means for color grading.
