I have been carrying out a color analysis of a fluoropolymer film recently and have results that I would appreciate some clarification on. Using a BYK Gardner Color Analyzer (Hand held) and a white background, we generate a set of Lab numbers. Using a UV/Visible Spectrometer (Perkin elmer), on the same sample - same testing spots, we generated Lab numbers which were MUCH lower. The BYK Gardner unit was a reflective unit, while the UV/Vis unit was a transmission.
Can anyone explain why the numbers would be so different with the two different techniques?
Any information would be GREATLY appreciated!
