The Gloss Meter uses superior tungsten halogen lamp technology to create a light source that has a true human photo-optic ISO Standard performance. Optical bench accuracy is obtained by the optics being mounted in a precision-engineered aluminium block.
Available in models of Standard and Top. All functions are easily accessible through a menu-driven back-lit display. Standard Models have Calibration, Statistics and limits functions. Top Models have all the functions of the Standard Model plus Batching and Download.
Supplied in an industrial Carrying Case with Gloss Tile and Charger. Top Models are supplied with and Download Software and Cable. Calibration Certificates are an optional extra.
Gloss and Haze measurement is essential where an aesthetic appearance of the coating finish is required and to ensure uniformity of the surface finish.
The gloss value is determined by directing a light, which has a similar wavelength to the human eye, at the test surface and measuring the amount of specular reflection.
Gloss is measured with angles of 60° and 20°. The 60° angle is universal for all applications. The 20° angle gives improved differentiation of measurement on high-gloss coatings above 70 gloss units.
Haze measurement is required where high-gloss surfaces have a low reflection contrast.
The haze measurement is the difference between readings taken with the 60° and 20° angles, complying with International Standard ASTM D 4039. The haze function is only available on combined 60°/20° models.
Compact and portable, the Gloss Meter is one of the most advanced Gloss Meters available. By using tungsten halogen lamps and optical filters the light source has a similar spectro-response to the human eye, giving true human photo-optic performance, which
is essential for ensuring exact compliance to International Standards.
Optical bench accuracy and stability are obtained by the optics being set in a precision-engineered aluminium block.
Available in models of Standard and Top. All functions

Calibration. Calibrate on the supplied Gloss Tile or any other value Gloss Tile.
Statistics. Continually shows Mean, Number of Readings,
Max/Min, Coefficient of Variation and
Limits. Pass and fail with audible and visual alarm.
All the functions of the Standard Model plus the following:
Batching. Measurements that are taken can be stored into batches which incorporate batch number, unique job number, and date and time. You can also go back to previous batches and look at the statistics and add or cancel readings from previous batches.
Download. Enables all measurements, statistics and out-of-limit readings to be downloaded to a computer either by batch number or job number into Microsoft
Word or Excel.
