Photographic Standards

Assessing the appearance of specimens

In spite of the increasing sophistication of our instrumentation, standard, graded photographs are still widely used for the assessment of specimens in evaluating surface changes after testing. To ensure absolute consistency from batch to batch and to make the photographic references as easy as possible to use, they are produced in-house and under strictly controlled conditions.
