Color Measurement for Building Materials

A spectrum of color measurement applications

Building materials such as PVC, aluminum, paint, glass, ceramics, and concrete are the foundation of the building/construction industry. Materials range from opaque to transparent and from solid to liquid and all have different types of measurement needs. Handheld Sphere Spectrophotometers like the CM-26dG series from Konica Minolta Sensing are excellent for testing the color of small or large samples to ensure consistency. Versatile Benchtop Spectrophotometers like our CM-5 are ideal for transparent materials, solvent based, powder coatings, and high performance coatings, all of which present unique challenges.

To learn more about color measurement in the Building/Construction industry watch our latest video below.

Be sure to visit Konica Minolta Sensing Booth# S13329 at this year's World of Concrete. More information listed below.
