3 Analytical chemists at work in DuPont research laboratory 1950/1959, 1950, 1959 E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Company (originator) To guide the research chemist in his activities it is essential that the products he obtains be checked for their conformity to specifications. Also, new compounds are prepared which must be identified. The analytical chemist is a specialist, trained to perform these necessary services for the research chemist. In the photograph, the chemists are carrying out determination such as the titration of acidity, the measurement of viscosity, distillation by means of steam, the determination of...

22 Determining the degree of gloss 1938-02 E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Company (originator) To determine the degree of gloss in a lacquer or finish, du Pont chemists use a device that measures the amount of light reflected. The light from a constant source is thrown back from the panel into the telescope tube. One half of the 'eyepiece' is illuminated by this reflected radiation, with the other half lighted by a small bulb in the photometer tube attached to the side of the telescope. This light is passed back and forth in the tube until the brightness of the two section meet. The...

To determine the degree of gloss in a lacquer or finish, du Pont chemists use a device that measures the amount of light reflected. The light from a constant source is thrown back from the panel into the telescope tube. One half of the 'eyepiece' is illuminated by this reflected radiation, with the other half lighted by a small bulb in the photometer tube attached to the side of the telescope. This light is passed back and forth in the tube until the brightness of the two section meet. The distance of the light from the 'eyepiece' is then a measure of the amount of light reflected or the gloss.

23 Determining the drying time of lacquer 1937-12 E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Company (originator) How fast a lacquer or finish will dry is determined by the use of plate glass discs coated with the material to be tested and revolved slowly while a thin trickle of sand falls on them from a cone shaped container. It has been found by DuPont chemists that the point at which the sand no longer adheres accurately determines the drying time.
