The TINT TESTER 527 has been specially developed for measuring the brightness of dark pasty test coatings (e.g. applications of pigment pastes for determining the tinting strength according to ASTM D 3265 and ASTM D 2745). This model also enables standard brightness values to be measured on solid samples (lacquer layers, paper, plastic surfaces, etc.). The TINT TESTER consists of the stationary mains-powered supply unit with 4½-digit LED display and the portable brightness measuring head TINT SENSOR Y.
