How Does A Digital Gloss Meter Measure the Glossiness of Materials

Human's understanding of materials most relies on different angles of light. Light is the prerequisite for creating the beauty of all kinds of materials. Without light, materials cannot fully show their beauty. The Angle, strength, and color of light are all factors that affect the beauty of materials. Not only does light give the material a variety of colors, but it also gives the material a variety of gloss, which can be measured with a digital gloss meter.

Gloss is a measure of optical smoothness. Gloss directly affects the printing properties of materials and can also be used to check the uniformity of the surface of products. The smoothness of gloss is not the same. The ideal test method is to test gloss and smoothness at the same time. There is a reflection of incident light on the surface of the sample which is measured by a variable-angle photometer. The surface gloss of the material can be measured by a digital gloss meter. The digital gloss meter can be used for 60 degrees universal Angle measurement, measuring range up to 1000GU. The instrument has the function of temperature compensation, which can ensure the stability of the test data under different temperature environments, and the test data fully meet the national standard.

Digital gloss meter has a perfect appearance, high precision, high-cost performance, has been the broad used for the ceramic, stone products, metal coating, paint coatings, printing ink, decoration materials, building materials, plastic materials, bamboo and wood products, thin film, paper, leather shoes, car maintenance, forming mould, etc many fields.
