Specially designed paints with high emissivity for accurate thermographic measurements.


For accurate temperature measurement with an infrared camera, you have to take into account the emissivity of a specific material.

This can cause several complications. Especially in cases of: 

  • measurement of materials with low emissivity
  • inhomogeneous surface
  • unknown emissivity
  • measurement from different angles
Surface with LabIR Paints
Inhomogeneous surface with unknown emissivity
We know the temperature and angle dependence of paint emissivity


LabIR Paints create a homogeneous and high emissivity coating for very accurate temperature measurement.

The paint eliminates measurement inaccuracies caused by material properties. The temperature and angle dependence of the emissivity can be found on the product website.

LabIR Paints

Guaranteed emissivity

Unique, specially designed paints guarantee emissivity for given wavelengths, emissivity depending on temperature, measurement angle, as well as other properties, such as mechanical resistance, low transmissivity, etc.

We offer three types of paints adapted to specific applications, for low- and high-temperature use.

Thermographic paints LabIR

Why use LabIR Paints?

We can achieve the best thermographic measurement results with high emissivity surfaces. For low emissivity surfaces with high reflectivity, measurement is complicated, not very accurate or even impossible.

Thermographic paints create high emissivity and homogeneous coatings on a hard-to-measure surface. Properties of thermographic paints defined in detail enable exact temperature measurement of the basic material.

Knowledge of emissivity is the key to quality measurement

Our thermographic paints have precisely defined optical properties. In the case of competing products, only the emissivity value is given without any further context. Emissivity can vary significantly based on other conditions.

Knowledge of the photo-thermal properties of the paints is our unique know-how

  • emissivity dependence on wavelength, surface temperature and viewing angle
  • transmissivity as a function of wavelength
  • selected mechanical, thermo-mechanical and electrical properties
