Often referred to as PT-Co, Platinum-Cobalt, Hazen or APHA Color. All terms are interchangeable and equally valid. This scale is used to measure clear to dark amber liquids and was originally defined by specified dilutions of a platinum-cobalt stock solution, ranging from 0 at the light end of the scale to 500 at the darkest.
