Spectrophotometers for Metallic Colors – BYK-mac i COLOR


Spectrophotometer for total color control of effect finishes

Effect finishes change their appearance with viewing angle and lighting conditions. The BYK-mac i spectrophotometer is unique as it measures multi-angle color as well as sparkle and graininess for total color matching in one portable device. Additionally, it detects and quantifies fluorescent light in the visible range. The BYK-mac i spectrophotometer provides superior accuracy and low maintenance for many years due to a long-term stable light source and patented illumination control.

International Standards

ASTM D 2244, E 308, E 1164, E 2194
DIN 5033, 5036, 6174, 6175-2
DIN EN ISO 11664

Multi-angle color measurement

  • Measuring area: 23 mm diameter
  • Multi-angle color measurement:
    – 5-angle color measurement for
    light/dark travel evaluation
    15° / 25° / 45° / 75° / 110°
    – Additional color measurement behind
    the gloss for color flop analysis: -15°
  • Detection and quantification of fluorescent light excited in the visible range: Intensity Emission Value
  • Excellent agreement between instruments allowing usage of digital standards among the supply chain
  • Stable, long-term calibration – needed only every three months
  • Temperature independent results between 10 – 40° C – without calibration
  • Stable positioning due to 4 trigger pins on bottom plate – operator influence minimized
  • 10 year warranty on LED light source – no lamp changes needed
  • Operated by a rechargeable battery pack – good for 1,000 readings
  • Menu guided operation according to your own sampling procedure
  • Pass/Fail results displayed on the instrument for instant feed back of color performance at the production line
  • Professional data documentation and analysis with smart-chart software
