A glossmeter (also gloss meter) is an instrument which is used to measure the specular reflection (gloss) of a surface. Gloss is determined by projecting a beam of light at a fixed intensity and angle onto a surface and measuring the amount of reflected light at an equal but opposite angle
4) How is Gloss Measured?
|Gloss Range with 60° Gloss Meter||Measure With:|
|If Low Gloss < 10 GU||85 °|
When using a gloss meter, it is crucial to ensure that the surface being measured is clean and free of debris, as foreign particles can affect the measurement accuracy. Additionally, it is essential to follow the manufacturer's guidelines regarding measurement angle and any specific sample preparation procedures.
