New Tool Measures 4 Surface Appearance Quality Conditions Simultaneously

If surface appearance quality is critical to your product, learn about a new manufacturing-friendly tool that allows you to establish numerical standards for and measure four conditions of surface quality: gloss, haze, image clarity, BRDF including Canon’s new parameter “Scattering C20, C60.” This new parameter goes beyond IC and DOI to enable measure of non-glossy surfaces such as textured surfaces, matte paint, and matte paper. With this one tool, the Surface Reflectance Analyzer, you can measure four surface conditions simultaneously, in less than four seconds.
