SDL Atlas Introduces MMT ColorChex Upgraded M233B

SDL Atlas, England, has released a Moisture Management Tester (MMT) for knitted and woven apparel fabrics, the ColorChex line of viewing cabinets for color matching and grading, and an upgraded M233B automatic flammability tester.

The table-top MMT, designed to comply with American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists, International Organization for Standardization and Standards Norway (drafting) standards, measures a fabric’s dynamic moisture-transport properties and provides the moisture-absorbing rate of its inner and outer surfaces, inner-to-outer-surface transportation capability and moisture-spreading rate. It also delivers six key indexes including wetting time, absorption rate, maximum wetted radius, liquid spreading speed, accumulative one-way transport capacity and overall moisture-management capacity.

The ColorChex cabinets meet and exceed existing international standards, and are priced lower than conventional cabinets offered by other North American and European companies, according to SDL. The compact ColorChex N7, designed to meet the requirements of suppliers to the North American market, provides five different light sources, an ASTM D1729-compliant neutral gray interior with a surround and ambient field color of Munsell N7, and a remote-control option to select light sources. The larger ColorChex 60 and ColorChex 120 models offer precision matching to the requirements of leading British and European retailers, reproducing light source spectral characteristics and duplicating the interior, which enables users to match results of existing cabinet users.

The computer-controlled M233B, which features an optional radiator assembly to enable testing to British Standard EN 13772:2003, includes interchangeable test frames and burners, automatic flame ignition and flame application timer, and new Windows®-based software.
