Novo-Haze TX Transmission
The Novo-Haze is used to measure total transmission and Haze. Complies to ASTM D1003. The Novo-Haze TX transmission hazemeter quantifies the optical qualities of transparent materials. The two most important aspects are:
1. Transmission — a measurement of the total amount of light that passes through a material that is influenced by absorption and reflective properties. In the plastic film industry the transmission measurement is related to the opacity of the material and/or the hiding power of the applied coatings.
2. Transmission Haze — 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 the optical characteristics of plastics and packaging films. In packaging applications hazy films may reduce a consumer’s quality perception as packed products can look cloudy and indistinct. For plastics with haze the visibility of the test material becomes more apparent.
