With the sophistication of new pearlescent and metallic automotive paints and coatings, it has become more difficult than ever to quantify color, especially on a curved surface. This 30-minute Webinar examines how to meet the challenges of measuring metallic and pearlescent coatings as well as curved surface samples such as front and rear bumpers, vehicle mirror bodies, and door handles – quickly, accurately, and repeatedly. Specifically, it explores the role of multi-angle spectrophotometers in solving issues that arise when measuring color in modern automotive coatings.
An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
