Color and Gloss Control
of automotive interior parts
Most people consider color and gloss harmony of the car inte-
rior to be a key item when judging the perceived quality of a
vehicle. Consequently, the quality requirements for the interior
design of a car have increased over the last years. A variety of
materials are used and need to be harmonized. To achieve a uni-
form look among the interior trim parts, very tight tolerances are
specified. Only instruments with excellent precision are able to
objectively control the production.

                                                                     The new spectro-guide S family offers improved technical

Color Measurement
for Specific Applications
Color Control of Small Parts
Keyboards, pens and window handles require a color instrument
with a very small aperture and a repeatable sample placement.
color-guide 45/0, 4 mm aperture together with the optional sam-
ple holder guarantee repeatable results and a convenient sample
placement.
■ Minimum sample size: 5 x 5 mm (0.2 x 0.2 in)

Color Control of Powdered Material                                    color-guide 45/0, 4 mm
When measuring powdery or granular material like raw material
pucks or grainy food, the instrument's optics must be protected.
The color-guide spectrophotometer with glass sealed aperture
uses a colorless, optical glass and can directly measure such prod-
ucts, thus saving sample preparation time.


Color Control – easy and secure
■ Easy to use and handle – even for color beginners
■ Stable, long-term calibration – needed only every three
  months
■ Highly temperature stable – even in extreme conditions
■ Uses standard AA batteries – good for 10,000 readings
■ 10 year warranty on light source – no lamp changes needed
■ Light weight and small size – only weighs 500 g
                                                                      color-guide with glass sealed aperture

Professional Documentation
with easy-link
ISO 9000 requires documentation of color data. easy-link,
included with the color-guide, offers all of the necessary tools:
■ Easy and direct data transfer from the instrument to Excel®
■ Predefined QC-report templates (Lab-plot, trend graph) are
   included
■ All relevant quality data can be easily summarized in one
   report: Color – Gloss – Film Thickness
■ Easy management of your standards: standard back-up and
   establishing of production tolerances
                                                                      Complete color QC-report                 Trend analysis:
