1. How To Measure Luminance With Light Meters

    There seems to be a never-ending list of ways light meters are used in a wide range of industries. These powerful luminance meters give technicians an accurate appraisal of the characteristics of any number of light sources and are used for quality control and other important purposes.

  2. Continuous Hot Melt Production

    Adhesives are characterized by the fact that they adhere simply through pressing together the parts of the joint which requires bonding.

  3. Feeding & Conveying In Polyolefin Production

    Polyolefins are produced by the polymerization of olefins or alkenes (molecules with the general formula CnH2n) such as ethylene, propylene, butene, isoprene, pentene, etc. The name “olefin” means “oil-like” and refers to the oily character of the materials.

  4. Conveying And Feeding Of Calcium Carbonate In Plastics Compounding

    Calcium carbonate (CaCO3) is one of the most popular mineral fillers used in the plastics industry. It is widely available around the world, easy to grind or reduce to a specific particle size, compatible with a wide range of polymer resins and economical.

  5. Color Measurement Basics

    An infinite number of colors surround us in our everyday lives. We all take color pretty much for granted, but it has a wide range of roles in our daily lives: not only does it influence our tastes in food and other purchases, the color of a person’s face can also tell us about that person’s health.

  6. Differences Between Object Color And Source Color

    Determining the color of an object was described previously. However, there is a difference when a color is created independently such as by a light bulb. This is called source color. The following is a simple explanation of the differences between objects and source color.
