MIZA TrHz-77 Transmission HAZE Meter  "Custom Small Aperture model"

The MIZA TrHz-77 Custom Transmission HAZE Color Meter model comes with the industry's best three year warranty. This instrument is meant for customers requiring a special smaller 1-2mm slit area to be measured on tubes. This deluxe model has an accuracy and repeatability specifications that rival the more expensive designs from Germany but only this model has a slit type aperture made specifically for TUBES. This instrument was designed for both vertical and horizontal positions. The 2017 design is sleek and has the latest advancements in optics. 

“Transparency” is a vague description of the material characteristic. Products require different solutions. Packaging for a meat product in a grocery store should be extra clear or transparent, while plastic bags are semi-opaque to keep its contents private. Transparency involves the combination of reflection, transmission, and absorption of the translucent material. Another characteristic also visible to the human eye is the haziness or cloudiness of a material. Haziness or HAZE can be characterized by the scattering of light. Scattering is also divided into Narrow and wide-angle scattering. Our instrument measures the latter or wide angle scattering. Wide-angle scattering occurs at >2.5° from the perpendicular to the material. ASTM D 1003 and ISO 13468 measurement methods present different measurements. 

ASTM D 1003 uses illuminants A and C while ISO 13468 uses Illuminant D65.

Our Imbotec MIZA Transmission HAZE Meter easily measures all translucent materials. These include plastic packaging film, clear PVC, LCD panels, glass and more.

What is Transmission Haze?

Transmission Haze is a measurement of the light scattering characteristics of a material. Haze can be due to suspended particles or contaminants within a sample or fine surface texture & contamination.

Haze measurement can be used to quantify optical characteristics of plastics and packaging films.

Meat with hazy packaging

 In packaging applications hazy films may reduce a consumer’s quality perception as packed products with haze affected films can look cloudy and indistinct.

 For plastics with haze, the visibility of the test material becomes more apparent and the contrast of viewed objects is reduced.
