A new tester in the IGT line. Very accurate and repeatable tack tester using state of the art electronic sensors.

All known and respected features of the TackOscope and LithOscope we have combined into a brand new model.

This instrument uses tack measurement as a function of emulsification. The optional torque sensor can provide additional information about the change in rheology of the ink as function of emulsification.

The sun you have always wanted: sunshine day and night for accelerated light stability and weathering tests.

  1. Radiant energy in the SOLARBOX is provided by a single superior air-cooled Xenon Lamp generating an irradiance level up to two times the sun one. Irradiance is the rate at which light energy falls onto the samples. A weathering tester must control irradiance if it is to achieve accurate and reproducible test results. SOLARBOX offers constant measurement and control of irradiance during every test, compensating for lamp and UV filter ageing via a closed loop irradiance narrow-band sensor control system. Irradiation uniformity is guaranteed by a parabolic reflector chamber with the Xenon Lamp in the focus, the best design for a reliable flat-bed xenon exposure system and very good agreement with rotating drum xenon exposures.

The fineness of grind is particularly important during the manufacture of pigment products. by its determination the efficiency of dispersion processes can be followed, and the performance of dispersion apparatuses and methods can be determined.
