Abstract

Various industries are striving for novel, more reliable but still efficient approaches to coatings characterization. Majority of industrial applications use portable instruments for characterization of effect coatings. They typically capture a limited set of in-plane geometries and have limited ability to reliably characterize gonio-apparent behavior typical for such coatings. The instruments rely mostly on color and reflectance characteristics without using a texture information across the coating plane. In this paper, we propose image-based method that counts numbers of effective pigments and their active area. First, we captured appearance of eight effect coatings featuring four different pigment materials, in in-plane and out-of-plane geometries. We used a gonioreflectometer for fixed viewing and varying illumination angles. Our analysis has shown that the proposed method is able to clearly distinguish pigment materials and coating applications in both in-plane and out-of-plane geometries. Finally, we show an application of our method to analysis of spatial non-uniformity, i.e. cloudiness or mottling, across a coated panel.
