86197 Gloss Meter

Multi-angles, large range, high precision

20°/60°/85° multi-angle measurement modes
Large range design, up to 2000GU
High precision, and conforms to Chinese Grade 1 gloss meter standards

User manual

It is a multi-angle designed gloss meter. Due to its ivory white engineering housing, its appearance is simple and generous. It has 3 measuring angles of 20°, 60° and 85°, so that the gloss at different angles can be measured at the same time. Thanks to the large measuring range of up to 2000GU, the device can measure materials with high gloss and even specular reflectivity. The device supports normal mode and QC mode. In QC mode, it can automatically determine whether the gloss of the material is qualified, thus the measurement efficiency is improved.  It is widely used for the surface gloss measurement of paints, coatings, inks, plastics, ceramics, paper, stones, metals and other materials.
