Clouded By Haze: How to Ensure Clarity in Transparent Materials   How to Measure Haze with the CM-5 Spectrophotometer and Software
Just like in the atmosphere, haze can create a cloudy appearance in objects. This cloudiness makes the objects appear lighter and distorted, often creating problems for manufacturers needing to meet certain quality standards for their products. While highly problematic, haze can be controlled and minimized.
Haze can create a cloudy appearance in objects, often compromising the clarity of the material. To ensure each batch maintains consistency and clarity, this technical note outlines the steps to evaluating haze with the easy-to-use CM-5 Spectrophotometer and SpectraMagic NX Pro software.
