The Novo-Haze TX measures Total Transmission and Haze according to ASTM D1003 (CIE C). ASTM D1003 is one of the most important standards used in QA applications for film and sheet.
The Rhopoint Novo-Haze Transmission Haze meter allows Fast and Accurate optical transmission and haze measurement 30% faster than the Haze-Gard i. This makes the Novo-Haze TX an ideal choice for both quality and development functions for any laboratory or QA environment. You can also get it faster; since it is at a fraction of the price (see below).
Ease of Use
The user interface presents an intuitively designed screen with six quick access touch-sensitive buttons on the edge of the screen.
These quick response buttons also prevent potentially dirty fingers from smudging the screen. Data, at a push of one button, is easily transferred onto a USB memory stick with the built-in date stamped and statistical data per batch.
The small label printer (not available with the Haze-Gard i) permits samples to be identified with printed Results.
This instrument was designed as a direct response to the Packaging IndustryÃ¢¬¢s requirements, thus Novo-Haze TX was developed to measure films and thin sheet products.
What is Transmission Haze?
Transmission Haze is a measurement of the light scattering characteristics of a material. Haze can be due to suspended particles or contaminants within a sample or fine surface texture & contamination.
Haze measurement can be used to quantify optical characteristics of plastics and packaging films.
In packaging applications hazy films may reduce a consumerÃ¢¬¢s quality perception as packed products with haze affected films can look cloudy and indistinct.
For plastics with haze, the visibility of the test material becomes more apparent and the contrast of viewed objects is reduced.
The innovative design for the packaging industry allows enormous savings, a 50% savings, i.e. over ten thousand dollars, compared to the Haze-Gard i, but the MIZA TrHz-22 or TrHz-33 is an even better value .
