Gloss is an important attribute of surface appearance, it changes our perception of colours and shapes and influences our overall visual experience.
Gloss affects objects by the interaction of incident light with the surface and observer and depends on variables such as illumination angle, surface profile, physical characteristics and observation conditions.
For many products, gloss can play an important part in their visual acceptability and for quality purposes should be monitored with precision instrumentation particularly when it varies through the process.
This bench top unit is designed for the gloss measurement of curved or specially shaped surfaces difficult to measure with pocket instruments. The flat top allows large samples to be conveniently and accurately placed onto the glossmeter for measurement.
With three angles in one robust, lightweight, portable package the Glossmaster range will easily tackle every gloss measurement application.
A high gloss surface is expected to have a clear and brilliant appearance, however due to certain structural defects it may exhibit a milky appearance, which reduces its reflecting quality.
This milkiness or haze effect may be caused by various physical parameters:
Certain applications demand the use of glossmeters with specific geometries. These pocket size instrument with dedicated geometries have been designed to meet these requirements.
The standard Microgloss 155/SO glossmeter is designed specifically for selective sampling of gloss measurement on very small areas at 60° incidence.
This pocket sized glossmeter is designed to meet all the requirements of a field and laboratory instrument but at a very cost effective price.
