Color measurement of paper

HunterLab’s color measurement systems measure the color of paper, as well as pulp for paper towels, hygiene products, coffee filters, filling material and additives, as well as packaging of all kinds and cardboard packaging. There is a suitable device for every material. After testing color, brightness and opacity, you receive color values that guarantee consistent quality in quality assurance during ongoing production and until the end of a process.

HunterLab spectrophotometers offer precise and repeatable color value measurement as well as calibrated UV measurement, determination of whiteness (WI Whiteness Index) and yellowness (YI Yellowness Index).
