NDC Technologies is debuting new gauge at the upcoming K 2019 Show that enables processors to accurately and reliably measure the haze of film and sheet inline, and generate real-time reports in real time on this process parameter.

NDC Technologies is debuting new gauge at the upcoming K 2019 Show that enables processors to accurately and reliably measure the haze of film and sheet inline, and generate real-time reports in real time on this process parameter.

Film or sheet with a poor visible appearance can be problematic for processors trying to maintain a specific quality standard. NDC’s new HazePro gauge reportedly solves this problem by measuring the haze of both narrow and wide films online with the highest accuracy and reliability. With HazePro, manufacturers can precisely adjust the film and sheet extrusion process to tightly maintain haze quality. Process adjustments can be automated for real-time control of haze. Applications include optical, packaging, flexible packaging, agricultural, solar panel, coatings on glass (such as solar panels), anti-glare on computer screens and other uses.

NDC’s haze measurement complies with ASTM standard D1003 for transparent materials.

    Processors tend to recommend a much larger extruder than what’s really necessary for the job and the capabilities of the downstream equipment.

    Photovoltaic markets are growing explosively, and so are opportunities for specialty film producers. Solar cell and module production, which was forecasted to grow at 50% a year for the next few years before the recession hit, is now expecting slightly more healthy 30% annual growth, according to DuPont, a major supplier of photovoltaic film materials. Solar cell and module manufacturers are expanding, and large numbers of new companies are entering the field.
