Novo-Haze TX Transmission Haze Meter


ASTM D1003 Standard Test Method for Haze and Luminous Transmittance of Transparent Plastics

 

The Rhopoint Novo-Haze TX Transmission Hazemeter provides the user with accurate and speedy measurements of the optical quality of transparent materials such as plastic films.

It measures the most important standard that most QA applications are based on by measuring haze and total transmission according to ASTM D1003 (CIE C).



 

Features

The Novo-Haze TX transmission hazemeter measures the optical quality of transparent materials. The two most important features of this are:

Transmission Haze is a measurement of a materials light scattering characteristic. The haze effect can be due to the suspension of particles or contaminants within a fine textured surface and contaminants or sample. In applications such as packaging, hazy films can affect a consumers first impression and considerably reduce their quality perception, especially if the packed product looks cloudy or indistinct. For materials with haze, the visibility of the plastic appears more apparent and the contrast of viewed objects decrease.

Transmission is the measurement of the total amount of light that passes through a chosen material that is influenced by reflective properties and absorption. In the industry, the transmission measurement is related to the opacity of material and/or the hiding power of the applied coatings.

  • The Rhopoint Novo-Haze TX Transmission Hazemeter provides the user with accurate and speedy measurements of the optical quality of transparent materials such as plastic films.
  • It measures the most important standard that most QA applications are based on by measuring haze and total transmission according to ASTM D1003 (CIE C).
  • Manufactured to work with industry requirements, this instrument is offered so you make huge savings when compared to hazemeters that contain additional superfluous methods.
  • The hazemeter features a user-friendly interface which decreases the time taken to test, making it an ideal choice for both R&D and QC.
  • The Novo-Haze’s European manufacture is made with high quality materials making its design even more advanced.
  • At half the price of the market leader which only measures to the ASTM D1003. CIE C the Rhopoint Novo-Haze gives huge savings with out substituting its accuracy.
  • In packaging applications hazy films may reduce a consumer’s quality perception as packed products can look cloudy and indistinct. For plastics with haze the visibility of the test material becomes more apparent and the contrast of viewed objects is reduced, such as: Plastic Film, Food Contact Film, and Packaging Film.

How to Use

  • The Novo-Haze TX is a touch sensitive interface that makes it very easy to use. The menu structure is laid out, so it isn’t complicated, with all measurement functions being accessible from one screen.
  • The footswitch or single touch button is used to initiate automatic measurement mode or single measurements.
  • When the test comes to an end, the percentage of transmittance and haze are displayed on the screen.
  • If a few tests are performed, the statistics for the batch will be displayed and then printed to the results printer to ensure retained samples are kept together.
