The VRP-100 Reflection Polarimeter System enables fast, accurate, and non-destructive measurement of residual stress in automotive windshields and other glass products containing black bands or painted areas. In fact, sensitivity and precision of the system is effectively twice that of transmissive systems. It is currently in use by many of the world's leading automobile manufacturers and automotive glass fabricators.
The VRP-100 permits accurate stress measurement within the black painted band, without the need for removing paint or making special parts. The polarimeter provides a full-field view of the edge region, allowing the operator to recognize problem areas at a glance. A reflective target allows clear areas of the glass to be measured. Options include a calibration gauge, a telescope attachment for measuring edge compression, and a high-intensity illuminator for measuring in transmissive mode.
