REFLECON® tarnish Type 1 products are volatile. They sublimate and evaporate residue-free.
Affecting factors of sublimation time:
Higher temperatures of matting agent, measuring object and ambient temperatures, here especially >30°C, reduce the sublimation time, lower temperatures increase the time.
- Structure of surface:
Rough surfaces increase the sublimation time, smooth surfaces reduce the time.
- Thickness of matting agent layer:
Applicate a thick layer of matting agent to increase the sublimation time enormously.
Please note that the state of aggregate changes at temperatures below 5°C. When the temperature rises up above 5°C the state of aggregate will normalize again.
