byko-chart Opacity

byko-chart Penopac

byko-chart Opacity-Display

The opacity chart consists of black and white areas with sufficient room to use color measurement instruments.
The penopac card is used to measure coating appearance changes between the unsealed and sealed portion of the chart.
The display charts has a large surface area for visual evaluation of hiding power.
