Color and Gloss Control of automotive interior parts
Most people consider color and gloss harmony of the car interior to be a key item when judging the perceived quality of a vehicle. Consequently, the quality requirements for the interior design of a car have increased over the last years. A variety of materials are used and need to be harmonized. To achieve a uniform look among the the interior trim parts, very tight tolerances are specified. Only instruments with excellent precision are able to objectively control the production.
The new spectro-guide S family offers improved technical performance for 60° gloss in the low gloss range 0 - 10 GU. The excellent repeatability of ± 0.1 can be guaranteed due to a patented calibration procedure. In addition, spectro-guide S offers unique benefits to always guarantee precise results:

  • Highly repeatable results independent of measuring direction due to a patented, true circumferential illumination
  • Long-term stable calibration - needed only every three months
  • Temperature stable color and gloss data between 10 - 40°C
  • 10 year warranty on the light source
  • 10 nm resolution for precise readings on brilliant and dark colors
  • Professional documentation with easy-link software


Do parts made out of different materials match?
Color differences are displayed simultaneously for three illuminants to control metamerism.
