Fast measurement of all parameters
Automatic calculation of cleanliness

On-board statistics

Clear tape is pressed on the measurement surface, torn away
and stuck onto white paper – For reference a clean piece of
tape is also stuck on the same white paper.
Measurements are made of the reference material and then of
the tape, cleanliness is calculated automatically.


Cleanliness and oxidisation on metal surfaces


Fast neasurement of all parameters
Automatic calculation of opacity

On-board statistics

Measurements are made over a white substrate and then over a black substrate. Opacity is automatically calculated and displayed.
