ASTM Standards Haze Samples Cuvette Holder
Transmission – The amount of light that passes through a product with consideration to the scattering of light through the product.
Haze – The ratio of light of Diffuse light versus total light passing through the product. We also call this "Wide Angle Scattering" at an angle > 2.5° ASTM D1003
Clarity – The amount of light that is scattered at a narrow-angle < 2.5° or Low Angle Scattering.
ASTM D1003 under CIE Illuminant C is used to measure Haze most often.
One of Imbotec Group's specialties is in the use and supply of Transmission Haze Meters. We have answers and solutions to unique measurement and sample preparation problems. We can help you choose the best value solution to 100% answer your requirements. We have at our disposal 6 - six models of Haze-Transmission Instruments.

|Haze Transmission Instrument Description||Warranty||Price||Value|
|BYK Haze-Gard i CLARITY Haze Transmission (all accessories extra)||2 Yr.||$28k||Costly|
|MIZA TrHz-22 Haze Transmission Meter Entry Level||3 Yr.||$10k||Value Zone|
|MIZA TrHz-33 Haze Transmission Color||3 Yr.||$15k||Value Zone|
|Rho Novo-Haze Transmission||1-2 Yr.||$14k-$18k||Discontinued|
|MIZA TrHz-55 CLARITY Haze Transmission & Spectrophotometer||3 Yr.||$20k||Value ++|
|MIZA TrHz-77 Custom Aperture Haze Transmission||3 Yr.||$18||Custom|
The above table gives you a rough idea of the USD pricing associated with every model.
But not all models are created equal, as the TrHz-33-55-77 and BYK include a half-day training while the Rho Novo Haze DOES NOT. The MIZA models include a full 3-year warranty, while others are one or two years only. However, only the Haze Gard i and the TrHz-55 do narrow-angle scattering or Clarity if this is a necessity for you. But the BYK includes no accessories while other models include the basics to offer you a full working model. The Rhopoint at this time is discontinued. The MIZA and BYK are serviced and calibrated here while the Rhopoint Novo-Haze has no service capability in North America and must be sent to another continent with additional costs.
The MIZA TrHz-77 has a custom aperture designed for special applications that no other company offers such as measuring tubes or light bulbs.
The choices are yours. Choose one of the many instruments due to Clarity or because of a long warranty time or due to service in North America or a custom aperture.
In terms of value and quality and Service, the MIZA stands out from the rest.
MIZA has four distinct models from entry, mid, adv, and custom offering every possible choice.
Give us a call to discuss your perfect application.
We also carry both Haze Standards and Transmission Standards. ASTM standards are required to periodically measure the accuracy of your instrument.
