Appearance of transparent products is dependent on their scattering properties. BYK-Gardner haze meters are widely used for appearance measurement of transparent materials such as films, plaques, plastic products, lenses or windshields. The haze-gard is available for standard methods according to ASTM and ISO.
How to measure transparency?
The objective standard for a clear view
Transparency of a product is influenced by absorption and scattering behavior of the specimen. Visually transparency is described by two phenomena: Haze and Clarity. The haze-gard measures all transparency parameters in one instrument: total transmission, haze and clarity. The outstanding precision and reliability of the haze-gard family, as well as its ease of use have made it the standard for transparency measurement in the glass, plastic, film and packaging industries.
