DESCRIPTION
BYK-mac i not only measures the complete color impression – including flip-flop, sparkle and graininess effects – but will also give you information on your pigment formulation. The new “smart-chart” software is designed for process control based on given specifications, and it also offers complete flexibility for ever-changing lab requirements.

 

The BYK-mac i is equipped with additional out-of-plane sensors that measure the fluorescent light in clearly defined wavelength ranges. To quantify the fluorescent light, BYK-mac i calculates a new index known as the "Intensity Emission value" which can be used as a preliminary indicator for light fastness.

Due to the highly stable LED illumination fluorescent colors can now be measured repeatable with one BYK-mac (no warm-up time, no temperature drift) and reproducible from BYK-mac to BYK-mac (no lamp aging). This allows usage of digital standards among the complete supply chain – the key to global color QC management.

As its well-known predecessor the BYK-mac, the new BYK-mac i spectrophotometer objectively measures total color impression of effect coatings:

  • Flake characterization by measuring with a camera the visual impression of sparkling and graininess, simulating effect changes under direct and diffuse lighting conditions

 

  • Multi-angle color measurement "before and behind the specular reflection" to give more information about color travel of special effect finishes

 

The shape of the BYK-mac i is designed to ensure easy handling and true portability. In order to guarantee stable readings on flat and curved samples, the BYK-mac i is equipped with trigger pins on the bottom plate of the instrument. Menu guided operation according to customer specific sampling procedures, designated buttons for standard and sample readings and a large, easy-to-read color display make quality control of effect finishes truly efficient. For further analysis and professional documentation of measurement results, the BYK-mac i comes with the software smart-chart for process control and lab analysis with online mode.
