Elcometer 4695 Opacity Charts

The term “Opacity Chart” refers to charts on which the test pattern is a simple combination of black and white areas, large enough for wider aperture reflectance instruments, as well as for visual opacity and colour observations.

Used to test the hiding power of the coating, using large black and white areas.

Elcometer 4695 Brushout Cards

Designed for informal brushout applications, thicker paper is used for the testing of coatings applied with a brush or roller.

The paper stock is almost twice the thickness of regular chart paper to give greater rigidity for more convenient handling – nominal thickness 0.5mm (20 mils).

Brushout Cards are also used widely for drawdowns and colorimetric measurements.

Elcometer 4695 Grey Scale Charts

The Elcometer 4695 Grey Scale Charts are sealed paint test charts with six stripes on a white field, ranging in shade from very light grey to black.

The stripes are numbered 1 to 6, representing uniform steps of increasing contrast.

The hiding power of the applied coatings is rated as the number of the darkest stripe that is completely (or almost completely) obscured, at a specified thickness or spread rate.

Form CU-1 is used for more practical large-area brush or roller applications as in ASTM D5150. Applications on Form 24B are made with a drawdown blade.

Elcometer 4695 Display Charts/Spreading Rate

The Elcometer 4695 Display/Spreading Rate Charts employ time-tested, diagonally striped patterns, having a strong visual impact that emphasises variations in film opacity.

They are frequently used for hiding power display purposes, by means of drawdowns or brushouts.

Spreading Rate Charts (Form 8H) are accurately 0.1 square metres (approximately one square foot) in area, and are used in brushout hiding tests at specified spreading rates as described in ASTM Method D 344.
