Do you always have the right tool at hand?

In situations where dry film thickness and dew point measurement are needed, the new byko-test makes it easier. The 2 in 1 gage delivers accurate and repeatable measurement of dry film thickness on Fe and NFe substrates and measures humidity, temperature, and dew point of the environment. While the new byko-test is especially aimed for coaters of exterior structures, like marine and protective coaters, there will also be a Lite version with reliable and accurate film thickness measurement only.

Young flamingos are born with a white downy plumage. Over time, the white color turns into pink. On their daily menu you will find seaweed and lots of small crustaceans containing the color pigment carotenoid. Exactly that pigment can be found in their plumage.

Babies are not known for their appetite for seaweed - but what exactly do they have in common with flamingos?
