MA98 Portable Multi-Angle Spectrophotometer

Color can make or break a product. Metallics, pearlescents, and other complex special effect finishes deliver limitless possibilities for enhancing product appeal. And limitless challenges as well. Duplicating complex colors from part to part is no easy task. X-Rite has answers. Our MA98 spectrophotometer is an intelligent, hand-held tool with the power to provide reliable, consistent data on special effect coatings that were formerly impossible to measure.

By using dual illuminators and sensors that measure more in-plane and out-of-plane angles than any instrument in its class, the MA98 is the only device that meets the ASTM standard (E2539) for measuring interference pigments. We developed a proprietary mathematical model for just this purpose. It identifies surface data points and create a unique color signature that takes into account the coating formula and how the coating was applied.

Operation is enhanced by exclusive advantages, such as X-ColorQC® software that enhances process recording, reporting, and control and a JOBs software mode that allows text or visual measurement direction to ensure consistency.

So now, the only limit to working with special effect finishes is your imagination.
