Gloss meters are used for measuring the specular reflection gloss of a surface. The gloss is determined by the measuring of the amount of reflected light at an equal, but opposite angle from the light beam. The quantity of light is determined by shining light from a defined angle at a surface and then measuring the light opposite the source of light at the same angle. The measurement is then compared to a standard. The most common angle for measurement is 60°.
GAOTek offers a wide range of compact and portable gloss meters with auto calibration function for immediate use and easy to use for new users. The gloss meters follow the accordance with the international standard ASTMD523, ASTMD1455, ASTMC346, ASTMC584, ASTMD2457, DIN ENISO2813, DIN67530, ENISO7668, JISZ8741, MFT30064, TAPPIT480, GB9754, GB/T13891, GB7706 and GB8807. Its parameters conform with JJG696-2002.
The Gloss is utilized as a visual indication which causes the surface of an object to be shiny or lustrous, metallic or matte appearance. The more the direct light is being projected and reflected, the more impression gloss is visible.
Gloss meter is a revolutionary technology that is used measure the reflection of the light off a surface from a given angle.
Some innovations that have been introduced include:
- New auto-diagnosis feature which it checks the calibration values and improves the accuracy of the instrument. The auto diagnosis tells when to calibrate and even checks if the standard is clean.
- New simple UI that offers a clear menu structure and new scroll wheel allow even inexperienced users to use the instrument.
- New gloss meters offer multiple readings per sample with full statistics.
- Direct data transfer to Excel, and the results are immediately displayed in a professional QC report with graphs for easier documentation.
GAOTek’s gloss meter is made up of these few features:
- compact and small
- auto calibration
- Power: built-in ion rechargeable battery
- Other Functions: data browsing and viewing function, backlight display
- 254 groups of measurements.
Gloss meters are used to test automotive interior and exterior parts, furniture, white goods, building materials, and more. Gloss meters are used in production, laboratory, and field measurements which are available in both hand-held and bench-top models. In the laboratory and field, gloss meters are used in research and development, quality check and analytical functions while it more use in painting, coating, automobile, plastic, ceramic, paper, and metal industries are among the industries that use gloss meters as a regular basis. Applications vary from quality control in surface finishing lines to production control in plastics fabrication plants.
GAOTek’s gloss meters follows the international standard of ASTMD523, ASTMD1455, ASTMC346, ASTMC584, ASTMD2457, DIN ENISO2813, DIN67530, ENISO7668, JISZ8741, MFT30064, TAPPIT480, GB9754, GB/T13891, GB7706 and GB8807. While its technical parameters conform with JJG696-2002. it is recommended to use a checking standard tile as the standard tile has assigned gloss values for each angle which are traceable to National Standards. International standards are available that define the specification and required method for different types of gloss meters used for different types of materials such as ceramics, paint, plastics, metals, paper, and automobile.
