Why Measure Gloss?
Gloss is an aspect of the visual perception of objects that is as important as color when considering the psychological impact of products on a consumer. Manufacturers design their products to have maximum appeal such as glossy magazine covers, highly reflective car body panels or satin black designer furniture.
The gloss of a surface can be influenced by a number of factors, for example the smoothness achieved during polishing, the amount and type of coating applied or the quality of the substrate. Therefore, it is important that gloss levels are consistent on every product or across different batches of products.
Gloss can also be a measure of the quality of the surface, for instance a drop in the gloss of a coated surface may indicate problems with its cure, leading to other failures such as poor adhesion or lack of protection for the coated surface which is why many manufacturing industries monitor the gloss of their products.
Single 60°, Dualgloss 20/60° or Trigloss 20/60/85° versions are for maximum accuracy and resolution in all gloss applications.
Gloss measurements are fully compatible with existing Novo-Gloss Lite and Micro-TRI-gloss results.
