Blown Film is a manufacturing technique for producing plastic sheets and tubes in the form of films. These sheets or tubes can be totally cylindrical or have other objects put into them to create useful items such as shopping bags, trash bags, or cling wrap. Thus, testing the glossiness of the surface of these plastic films will be an important part of the quality control process. We at Testronix have come up with one of the amazing testing instruments known as a gloss meter. This digital gloss meter will be helpful in measuring the gloss level of the surface of a material. You can easily obtain the glossiness of the surface with multiple degrees of angles. Here in this blog, we are going to provide you with information about blown films and how the Testronix gloss meter is useful to test the glossiness of the surface of these blown films.
Gloss is a key optical property related to the surface of plastics, particularly in sectors such as automotive, packaging films, and so on. The gloss of a polymer surface is defined as its ability to reflect light in a certain direction. Blown film production is ideal for creating goods with consistent qualities over their length and width. These films may vary in composition and thus it is important to measure the standard of an incident of the reflected light. This intensity of reflected light will be measured at different angles with the help of the Testronix gloss meter. We are considered to be one of the leading gloss meter manufacturers in India and provide you best and most advanced features embedded in our lab testing equipment.
This gloss measuring testing equipment has been designed with numerous geometrical angles to fulfill the testing need of a vast number of customers. It has been made to determine the quantity of light reflected from a given surface and to measure the gloss of that surface. It has been made using industrial standards like ASTM D2457, ASTM D523, ISO2813, GB/T 9754.
This gloss measuring device has a large touchscreen display that can be utilized for both operating and monitoring test results. The test data will be a software-based program's output. Its standardized triple angle approach, which includes measurements at 20 degrees, 60 degrees, and 85 degrees, allows for reproducible and trustworthy results.
Below we have listed the features and technical specifications of this lab testing equipment.
The Testronix gloss meter is one of the quality testing equipment that measures the brightness and whiteness of various products like white sugar and many more. From textile to plastic films and paint coatings, the Testronix gloss meter will easily test the shine, appearance, and quality of products manufactured. Below we have listed the features you will get with the Testronix gloss meter.
