Introducing the only 45°/0° spectrophotometer for the pulp and paper industry.

Technidyne has been the primary provider of TAPPI Brightness and color instrumentation for the paper industry for over 45 years. Now, with the introduction of the ColorTouch® X 45 Spectrophotometer we bring you the only 45°/0° spectrophotometer designed for the pulp and paper industry.

The ColorTouch® X 45 brings together a powerful set of tools to meet the demands of the brightness, color, color difference and fluorescence markets. In addition to these traditional applications, the expanded wavelength range of the ColorTouch® X 45 provides a higher level of accuracy and capabilities. No other instrument in the market today can match the ColorTouch® X 45 for capabilities, functionality and quality.
