NOVO SHADE DUO+ REFLECTORMETER

RHOPOINT NOVO SHADE DUO+ REFLECTORMETER

3-In-1 Portable, Lightweight Measurement Instruments – Opacity, Shade and Cleanliness Meter

Rhopoint Novo Shade Duo+ Reflectometer is a new and an affordable instrument with 0/45° geometry. It is designed and built  with 3 modes of operation. Opacity – Measuring the hiding power of a coating and plastic film. The instrument can help maintain the production quality of the following – Hiding power of paint, ink and coatings, Transparency of plastic film and Opacity of paper. Shade – Measure the shade of surface on a gray scale.The instrument can help maintain the production quality of the following – Shades of paint, ink and coatings, Fading of textiles and plastics.  Cleanliness – Measure the substrate cleanliness or oxidation of a surface. The instrument can help maintain the production quality of the cleanliness and oxidation of metal surface.
