ASTM C609: Standard Test Method for Measurement of Light Reflectance Value and Small Color Differences Between Pieces of Ceramic Tile
Standard: ASTM C609 - Standard Test Method for Measurement of Light Reflectance Value and Small Color Differences Between Pieces of Ceramic Tile
Certification Required: N/A
Scope: Per ASTM C609: "This test method covers the measurement of Light Reflectance Value (LRV) and visually small color difference between pieces of glazed or unglazed ceramic tile."
Applicable Products: Glazed and unglazed ceramic tiles
Test Procedure: The light reflectance and color of both reference and test tiles are collected using a spectrophotometer. These readings can be taken in different illuminant conditions such as daylight, incandescent, and fluorescent.
End Result: This test results inlight reflectance value and/or color difference between each test specimen and reference specimen.
