byko-visc RT Rotational ViscometerBYK-Gardner GmbH has unveiled its new byko-visc RT Rotational Viscometer, an instrument for precise measurement results with each test condition recorded for detailed results analysis and review. This precision is repeatable day-to-day and instrument-to-instrument thanks to BYK-Gardner’s rigorous quality control. An ISO 17025 calibration certificate is supplied with each instrument to confirm this performance.

Joining the BYK-Gardner offering of viscosity instruments, the byko-test RT now brings a comprehensive solution for customers’ QC needs.

It offers an intuitive navigation, a multitude of control options, and a large capacitive colour touch-screen display, which includes preset buttons to quickly recall often used measuring parameters to help reduce operator setup time. 

Available in two models, the byko-visc RT and byko-visc RT Lite, each feature versatility and compatibility with three different sensitivities and optional accessories. Measuring viscosity—lacquers, paints, primers, resins, lubricants, pharmaceuticals, creams, lotions, liquids soaps, beverages, dressings, sauces—from a near water-like, very high viscosity to even the most viscous epoxies, sealants, and pastes.

The byko-visc RT features an easy snap-on spindle attachment saving valuable operator time while protecting the instrument, and an adjustable stand to allow the user to easily raise and lower the viscometer head. The new line is also compatible with many other rotational viscometer models in terms of results, measurement parameters, and accessories, like spindles.

The byko-visc RT is designed to test the viscosity of your liquids and pastes in compliance with ASTM D2196, ISO 2555 and ISO1652 standards. With this level of precision, you can be sure that your measurements will be accurate every time.

This new line will be shipping at the end of May 2022.

New Digital Solution Helps Customers Bring Colours to Life

AkzoNobel 3D colour visualization tool
AkzoNobel Powder Coatings has developed a new web application 3D colour visualization tool within its Interpon webshop to help customers better understand how a powder coating’s colour, texture and finish that look good in theory, will actually appear in reality. 

The tool provides instant access to thousands of colours in the Interpon range. Using a 360-degree dynamic camera and simulated lighting, the customer is given a true-to-life image of how the colour performs to a degree of accuracy and realism not possible before in a virtual environment.  

Rather than the image being ‘flat’, the customer can orientate the ‘virtual’ panel to see how the light reflects and the colour looks from different angles.
