The type of color measurement tool for building materials that you will use depends on the material and how opaque, translucent, or transparent it is. Hunterlab offers color measurement tools for building materials with specific details in mind such as texture and size for high accuracy and consistency levels. Will your building material product last outdoors? For how long? Has something changed in your process that might affect its long term durability? Q-Lab offers accelerated weathering testers that simulate the primary weathering conditions that degrade building materials outdoors, allowing our customers to accurately reproduce dozens of failure.
