BYK-Gardner, worldwide partner of the paint and plastic industries for quality control of color, appearance and physical properties, is introducing the new light booth byko-spectra lite. In addition to the well-proven BYK-Gardner light booth range, the lite version with five light sources and compact design creates the standard for critical visual evaluation in laboratory and production.
Visual perception is highly subjective as it is influenced by our individual color preferences depending on our personal experience. At the same time we associate consistent color and appearance with high quality. The visual assessment is one of the most important criteria in purchasing home electronics, furnishings, or clothing.
As colors appear differently under different light sources, defined lighting conditions and standardized color-neutral environment are important in order to optimize the visual evaluation. The light sources of byko-spectra lite are daylight, home light and department store light which allows you to remove the risk of metamerism. Viewing under ultraviolet light helps you to detect and evaluate optical brighteners or fluorescent pigments. The byko-spectra lite with its certified consistency helps you to evaluate using all common standards such as ISO, ASTM, DIN, SAE, BSI and obtain color assessment with confidence. No matter what your product looks like, smart phone, cosmetic or packaging, with this light booth the color communication is improved and the product rejections are reduced.
In the world of light sources, everybody knows that the real challenge is to offer a daylight source that is as near as possible to the CIE standardized D65 illuminant. The daylight-based technology in our light booths assures consistent, accurate rendering of color with CIE rating of B/C based on CIE Publication 51.
Instruments should assist you in your daily work and not complicate it. Simple assembly without any tools and long term stable light sources with traceable certification minimizes your initial effort. Easy lamp replacement and servicing combined with an elapsed time tracker that indicates when to replace the lamps make the maintenance easy. For efficient work management, automatic sequencing provides a fixed viewing time for each source and helps to standardize the testing procedures.
If you use an ‘OBJECTIVE EYE’ – we offer a whole range of instruments for measurement of color and appearance.
