The gloss reflection of a surface is one of the most important properties of materials that need to be tested over time. This property will give you an idea about how well the surface will reflect light in a specular direction. You can easily determine this property in different materials like paint coatings at different surfaces etc. With a help of the Testronix gloss meter, you can easily measure gloss with different angles. This testing instrument is designed ergonomically to measure the gloss reflection on the surface of the material.

Here in this blog, you will get brief information about the Testronix gloss meter and how it is helpful in measuring gloss from different angles.
