We carry quality portable digital gloss meters for your inspection and testing requirements.
Many industries measure gloss to ensure the quality of their products. It has been shown that the gloss level of a product has as much psychological impact on a consumer as its color. Many products are designed with combinations of high gloss and matt finishes, maximizing their customer appeal.
Surface quality can often be assessed by measuring gloss. For example poorly cured paints or coatings can exhibit unusual gloss levels and can lead to chipping and flaking at a later stage in manufacture. Monitoring a product's gloss means that problems such as these can be highlighted early, avoiding costs of re-coating or recalling products.
