  • Paint Removal
    tools that are not properly painted, causing customer complaints. The purpose of paint on a machine tool is two-fold. First it protects the metal surfaces from corrosion and, second, serves as decor to add to the appeal of the machine. For many years the standard color for a machine tool was gray
  • Paint Reveals Corrosion
    COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Researchers at Ohio State University are developing an early warning system for aircraft degradation -- paint that changes color when the metal beneath it begins to corrode. While maintenance crews can search for corrosion with several high-tech tools including electromagnetic
  • Color Formulation to Match Color Standards More Efficiently
    When formulating the color of dye, ink, paint, plastic, or other materials, standardized procedures and conditions are required to match standards through a more efficient process. This involves identifying variables within your laboratory or production process, establishing a controlled
  • The Next Generation of Color Sensors
    Color sensors have long been used on assembly lines to detect specific components. The challenge has been to detect subtle differences among similar or highly reflective colors. For example, metallic paint used in the automotive industry makes it difficult to differentiate among shades of gray
  • Best Practices: Visually Evaluating the Color of Samples
    The method for evaluating the color and appearance of a sample is unique to each application. Many applications, including textiles, ink, plastics, and paint, require visual assessments to be performed, in addition to instrumental measurements. Visual assessments are conducted to identify
  • Breakthrough in Low Gloss and Abrasion Resistance of Molded-in-Color Automotive Interior Components (.pdf)
    The luxury impression of a vehicle's interior is strongly determined by the surface quality. of the plastic interior trim parts. In higher level vehicles, this is achieved by covering the plastic surfaces with Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) or Thermoplastic Olefin (TPO) skins,. fabrics, or paint. However
  • Near Infrared ( NIR ) Applications with Miniature Fiber Optic Spectrometers
    , food and dairy, biomedical, pharmaceutical, chemical and petrochemical, cosmetics, educational, research, semiconductor and thin film measurement, lamp and lighting, LED and laser development, optical component characterization, paint color formulations, pulp and paper processing, telecom
  • More Than Bells and Whistles
    without considering whether the vehicle would fit in their garage. However, if you're like most people, you wouldn't make such an important, big-ticket purchase decision based solely on superficial attributes like the paint color or the shiny wheels. When it comes to gas detection and monitoring
