Eyco Laboratories has carried out tests for a curtain manufacturing company.

April 09th 2024

The tests have focused on determining the darkening/opacity performance, according to the Standards JOIN IN 14500 y JOIN IN 14501 Annex E. In addition, tests have also been carried out on these textiles to determine the Gto, according to the Standard JOIN IN 52022 (ISO 52022.).

Through the tests for determining opacity established in the Standards JOIN IN 14500 y JOIN IN 14501 Curtains' ability to darken a space and provide privacy can be evaluated.

Annex E of the Standard JOIN IN 14501 focuses specifically on roller blinds. This annex describes test methods to determine the opacity of this type of curtains and evaluate their ability to block incoming light. These methods may include measuring the transmittance of light through the curtains, the reflectance of light on the surface of the curtains, and the absorption of light by the fabric.

On the other hand, the Standard JOIN IN 14500 provides a more general framework for evaluating the blackout and opacity performance of a variety of shade types, including pleated shades, venetian blinds, and vertical shades, among others. This standard establishes the test criteria and equipment necessary to make accurate measurements of the opacity of shades under different lighting conditions and viewing angles.

Finally, the Standard JOIN IN 52022 (ISO 52022.) refers to Gto. The value Gto is the total solar energy transmittance for a glazing in combination with an external, internal or integrated solar protection device. This factor is crucial to optimize energy efficiency in buildings and contribute to the thermal comfort of users.

Together, the tests carried out by Eyco Laboratories provide a comprehensive evaluation of the darkening/opacity performance and energy efficiency of the curtains, allowing the manufacturing company to guarantee that its products meet the quality and performance standards expected by consumers.

Eyco has carried out color tests on the Gardner scale for a veterinary medicines laboratory.

April 04th 2024

Eyco has carried out a series of Gardner scale color tests according ASTM D1544-80 for a veterinary drug laboratory.

La Gardner Color Scale is a visual evaluation system designed to quantify color in transparent liquids. This method is based on a series of color standards ranging from clear aqua (known as color 1) to darker shades of amber (color 18), each representing increasing color intensity. This gradation allows an objective and precise measurement of the color of the samples, crucial for the consistency and quality of our products.

The ASTM D1544-80, developed by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), establishes the specific procedures to carry out these tests. Details criteria for sample preparation, equipment calibration, and evaluation methods. Specifically, the standard describes how to illuminate the sample with an incandescent light source, how to observe it with a standardized observer, and how to compare it with color standards to assign a value in the Gardner scale.

This standard provides a solid foundation for the standardization and replication of color testing, ensuring reliable and comparable results at all times. Additionally, it allows us to monitor color stability over time, ensuring the quality and effectiveness of our veterinary products.

La Gardner Color Scale It is a tool used not only in the veterinary medicines industry, but also in many others. For example, in the paint and coatings industry, the Gardner Color It is essential to ensure color consistency and quality of the final product. In the plastics and polymers industry, it is used to control the transparency and visual appearance of materials. Furthermore, in the oil and lubricant industry, the Gardner Color It is a crucial measure of product purity and degradation.
