New Lovibond® Solution for colour measurement of food, powders, cosmetics & pastes

Nov 07 2012

The new Lovibond® LC 100 / SV 100 Hand-Held Spectrocolorimeter combination is the ideal solution for the versatile communication of colour measurement. By housing the colorimeter in a uniquely designed stand, samples can be read at an ergonomic viewing angle, enabling the measurement of ‘awkward’ substances in Lovibond® optical cells.

A secure cap is provided to cover the sample, protecting it from any excessive ambient light, enabling quick yet accurate readings. The units are provided in a purpose-designed case containing all the accessories required for accurate colour measurement expected of the Lovibond® brand.

The Lovibond® LC 100 colorimeter enables setting and maintaining colour standards throughout the manufacturing process. It is a lightweight tool that is easy to handle and ready to use. In just over a second, it not only provides a reading of the sample but also a report telling how close the colour is to a measured standard. Users can create and measure against up to 20 self-programmable standards with a default average valuing of 3. The LC 100 automatically creates conformance reports in either PDF or Excel formats for each stored sample against each standard. These can easily be shared with a PC or directly to a compatible printer (via USB mass storage mode).

Test results are easily viewed with:

  • Graphical Pass/Fail indicator
  • Display of ΔE for all common methods ie CIELAB, CMC, CIE 94, 2000
  • Display of measured and delta differences with L*a*b*C*h° for standard and sample
  • Graphical L*a*b* plot
  • Verbal colour difference description

Stand-alone, the SV 100 is a very portable, quick yet accurate tool for colour measurement. However, it is the precision-designed Lovibond® accessory kit that makes it so flexible. Supplied with the stand and cap to remove ambient light and 10 Lovibond® 10ml cells, the instrument is now ideal for the colour measurement of food, powder, cosmetics, pastes and pharmaceuticals.

To date, measuring the colour of these samples has either been awkward (requiring the sample’s protection from physical contact or presentation behind glass) or it has involved the use of several different instruments depending on the sample to be measured. This can prove expensive for any laboratory technician. The new Lovibond® solution overcomes these issues, offering an alternative option to reduce the technical difficulty and cost of Colour Quality Control.
