SDL Atlas has upgraded and improved its Launder-Ometer, an instrument to measure colour fastness to washing tests and which makes it easier to use.

According to a SDL Atlas press release, the Launder-Ometer has been upgraded with a gas-powered shock to assist in opening and closing the door.

The retention bars that lock containers in place have also been redesigned, so that operators, can now place the retention bar down over the containers and lock the five containers in place with a simple half turn of the knob.

"AATCC specified the Launder-Ometer for over 50 years as the instrument to use to perform their wash fastness tests,” said SDL Atlas president, Chuck Lane.

“Customers are still able to maintain confidence in the test results provided by Launder-Ometers that continue to run for decades,” Lane added.

“Known for decades as the AATCC Launder-Ometer, the Launder-Ometer was specifically cited in AATCC Test Method 61,” the company stated.

“It also remains the most effective way to conduct colour fastness to washing and dry cleaning in compliance with all major international standards for wash colour fastness testing,” it observed.

With offices and experts in the US, UK, Hong Kong and China, plus agents in over 100 countries, SDL Atlas supports its customers with instruments, equipment, consumables and services anywhere in the world. (AR)
