Measurement for Single & Multilayer Hardcoats

Filmetrics have developed the F10-HC to provide fast and accurate thickness measurements for single and multi-layer hard coats. The spectral reflectance technology of Filmetrics’ F20 platform has been combined with advanced simulation algorithms, to create a reliable measurement platform for hard coatings. The F10-HC is ideally suited for measuring single and multiple layers (such as primer and hard coat) encountered in polycarbonate and other hard coat applications. The F10-HC is used for automotive hard coat around the world with great success. Accurate and reliable, the F10-HC is backed by a comprehensive support package, including 24-hour online diagnostics and technical assistance.

Easy to Operate Software

To make film measurement efficient and easy, Filmetrics have developed the FILMeasure software package to power each Filmetrics measurement system. FILMeasure is simple and easy to use, making film measurement straightforward, even for inexperienced operators. With Template Mode, an image of a sample can be uploaded, and measurement points defined visually and superimposed to the image. Operators are automatically notified if measurements are valid at each point. FILMeasure also provides integration with FIlmetric’s comprehensive online technical support, including online diagnostics and technical help, available 24 hours a day.
