Gloss

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.

Micro Gloss Bench-top Glossmeter

Bench Microgloss Glossmeter

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.

Haze-gloss haze meter and gloss meter

Haze-gloss Haze Meter (SHBG4601)

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:

Microgloss 45° and 75°

Microgloss 45° and 75° Glossmeters
