Measurement results

NANO is the most accurate device on the market on textured surfaces.

Here below the L*a*b* values measured on a green sample by an independent laboratory.
The sample consists of 3 areas painted with the same green color. The first area, plain flat, measured with a spectrophotometer N°1 is used as reference value (marked with bold font face in the here below list). The second area, has a textile texture and the third area has a wall structure of 2 mm. NANO is the most accurate device, it has the smallest delta E on textile and textured surfaces. NANO reads and measures 50'000 pixels separately. During this reading process it automatically eliminates all non-dominant colors such as shade effects and dirty surfaces. This can not be done with other devices because they make an average with all the measurement area.
