High quality surfaces are expected to have a clear and brilliant appearance. The BYK-Gardner haze-gloss is the laboratory reference instrument for gloss and haze measurement. The portable micro-haze plus is the ideal QC solution for high gloss surfaces by measuring 20° gloss and reflection haze.
How to measure haze?
The Reference for a brilliant finish
High quality “class A” surfaces are expected to have a clear and brilliant appearance. Micro structures can cause a milky appearance. This effect is described as milkiness or haze and is often caused by specific parameters in the production process like resin type, degree of dispersion or application process. Haze can be characterized by measuring the diffuse scattered light. BYK-Gardner haze meters are used for years as a reference in the paint and plastic industry to ensure a brilliant quality.
