REFLECON® 3D Scanning Spray TYPE 2 - non-volatile scanning sprays
Type 2 3D scanning sprays create a matt, white powder layer when sprayed on and thus enable precise optical scanning even of these difficult surfaces. In contrast to our sublimating 3D scanning sprays ( Link), the powder layer does not evaporate, but has to be removed manually after use – cleaning, however, is easy with the help of a cloth, a brush and/or water. Use the TYPE 2 scanning spray for lengthy scanning processes, as the wetting on the top layer remains and does not disappear.
Achieve precise measurement results with the non-sublimating 3D scanning spray from REFLECON®.

With us you will find exactly the right 3D scanning spray for your needs!
Non-sublimating scanning sprays – the products of the REFLECON® brand
Our Tarnish product line includes two non-sublimating scanning sprays, which are available in two forms, one as a container and the other as an aerosol: Tarnish 80 and Tarnish 90. In order to be able to use the liquid from the container, you still need an additional spray gun, you can find the matching spray gun here: https://www.mr-chemie.de/en/products/spray-gun-pn-2a-compressed-air/.
The basic difference between these two products: whereas Tarnish 80 is solvent-free and water-based, Tarnish 90 contains solvents. The common ground: both permanent matting sprays produce an even white wetting for optimal and precise scanning of even the most difficult surfaces.
Tip: In the category of REFLECON® TARNISH – TYPE 2 you will also find a practical REFLECON® TARNISH 90 Piccolo Pen in addition to Tarnish 80 and Tarnish 90. It allows you to reach even difficult areas and to wet parts selectively without creating a spray mist.
Properties of our non-sublimating 3D scanning sprays
Titanium dioxide-free scanning sprays
Both sprays of product group type 2 are titanium dioxide free, as this substance is considered to be potentially hazardous to health. Titanium dioxide is known for its excellent optical properties and thin layer thicknesses, allowing high quality 3D laser scans. We at MR-Chemie have succeeded in manufacturing products that enable flawless 3D images even without the substance titanium dioxide.
Solvent-free or solvent-containing scanning sprays
With our two products Tarnish 80 and Tarnish 90 we offer both a solvent-free and a solvent-containing version.
The solvent-free, water-based Tarnish 80 spray is pleasant to use due to its low odour. Solvent-free sprays are therefore particularly popular for interior use. Water-based products are just as hard-wearing as solvent-based products.
Sprays containing solvents, such as our Tarnish 90, can be recognised by their characteristic odour. Solvent-based sprays are characterised by their universal application. We offer the Tarnish 90 spray as Aeresol, so that you can easily spray the surface to be scanned – even overhead.
Fast drying and easy to wipe off
To ensure that the 3D scan can be carried out quickly, the non-sublimating 3D scanning sprays are quick-drying. After the scan, the non-sublimating spray must be removed from the object. This cleaning process is easily done with the help of a cloth, a brush and/or water.
Suitable materials for non-sublimating scanning sprays
Non-volatile 3D scanning sprays are suitable for different materials. These include:
- Metals and non-metals
- Thermoplastics such as PC, PP, PU or ABS
- Polyester, cotton, PLA fibres
It is up to the user to check the suitability and should be tested before use.

Objects 3D Scanning: Instructions for using our REFLECON® brand type 2 non-sublimating scan sprays
Thoroughly clean the surface to be scanned. And allow the surface to dry completely before you start applying the matting spray.
- Spray the scanning spray onto the object at a distance of 20 – 30 cm.
- type 2 non-sublimating scanning sprays are sprayed wet but dry very quickly. Start 3D scanning as soon as the surface has dried.
- After scanning, remove the white powder layer with a cloth, brush or water.
Note: If drops form, increase the distance to the surface. Working faster can also prevent the formation of drops.
