Abstract

Three optical methods for sizing polymer particles are instrumented to be used in the leather industry. One method is based on the measurement of the light scattered intensity for several angles, and the other two are monochromatic or spectral extinction methods. Uniform latex particles and two commercial products used in leather finishing are measured. Advantages compared with electronic microscopy are discussed. © 1996 Society of Photo−Optical Instrumentation Engineers.
