"Orange Peel Standards"



2000

I'm looking for a visual standard to determine the level of 'orange peel' for an inspection standard I'm putting together for my company.

Can any one tell me where I can purchase one?

Take a look at Act Laboratories located in Hillsdale, MI. They have a list of the different standards available. These primarily deal with the automotive industry. However, we have had customers specify these in the electric motor industry as well.

Extract from their site:
"ACT provides sets of panels with graduated degrees of orange peel (flow) from rough to smooth. These panels are prepared at the request of several major automotive manufacturers for use by their suppliers in evaluating the appearance of painted parts using a consistent, known standard. Master Sets are held as standards for reproducing new sets. The Master Sets are reviewed by representatives of the auto companies listed, and the orange peel rating verified as appropriate. All panels are painted in black color. THESE PANELS ARE VISUAL STANDARDS ONLY. DOI or Gloss readings are provided as information only, at the specific request of particular automotive engineers."
