How to measure the color of plastic pellet with tabletop spectrophotometer CS-820?

Test Condition

  • 1. Mode: Reflectance 2. Light Source: D65
  • 3. Parameters need to Measure: YI (ASTM E313-2010) and L*a*b, ΔE*ab

Test Method

  • 1. Every sample we measure 3 times and note down the test result.
  • 2. We pour the sample out from glass cell after each test to assure test accuracy.

The following are the test results for all 4 samples:
