    Controlling the color of architectural glass is extremely important to ensure the creative and artistic intent of the designer, and to minimize the high cost of replacing off color panels in a structure.


    Measuring the color of glass is achieved in two ways; a simple transmission color measurement tells us the color of the glass as viewed from the inside, and a reflectance measurement of the coated side tells us the color of the glass as seen from the outside. The reflectance color results can help to determine the thickness of AR and other coatings.


  • Many HunterLab spectrophotometers are versatile enough to accommodate most applications of color measurement. However, based on our 60 + years of experience and our customers' uses, these particular instruments are most suited for this industry application.

    If you are unsure which instrument type is right for your samples, please call or email HunterLab technical support and we will be happy to assist you in making the proper instrument selection.
