Gloss measurement of paint is a necessary requirement in the coating industry. Application of glossy paint and its appearance under distinct angles is very important to test. Coating Color Measurement is the new innovation which can carry out these type of complex analysis within seconds. However, the right instrument must be chosen. Testronix, a leading brand of color measurement tools bring an in-house advanced test system.
Digital Gloss Meter is a hi-tech software used for conducting Gloss measurement of paint and coating. It can precisely evaluate the amount of gloss reflection of a particular material surface. Can be used on metal, plastic, paper or ceramic material. The device is designed by considering various global test standards such as ASTM D2457, ASTM D523, ISO2813, and GB/T 9754. These standards are accepted worldwide for gloss measurement techniques and its various application. Within a few seconds, it can detect the reflectance level of a color from the material surface. Using this technique one can measure the gloss, compare it from the standard or master value, and categorize material based upon the readings.
Digital Gloss Meter during Gloss measurement of paint is operated using a full automation software program. It allows converting the reflecting light detected into a numerical value, which makes it easy to understand and compare. Has a touchscreen operation feature. The user can manage, edit and save testing data. Test measurements can be seen with tri-angle feature i.e. one can see gloss value on three different angle – 20°, 60°, and 85°.
Auto calibration facility available in the equipment which allows the automatic calibration prior test to assure accuracy in the test readings. Each and every test data is saved in the device memory automatically so that no reading is ever missed.
The structural design of Digital Gloss Meter is highly user-friendly. It is built for delivering maximum handling ease to the customer. Multiple sets of test data of one particular material section can be displayed on the same screen for easy and quick comparison. Auto-power off feature installed. Test data can be downloaded from the USB portal.
