Novo Gloss trigloss gloss meter for all surfaces

Which gloss meter angle should I use for my application?

ISO 2813 and ASTM D523 (the most commonly used standards) describe three measurement angles of gloss using a gloss meter.

Gloss is measured in gloss units (GU) and is traceable to reference standards held at BAM (Germany), NRC (Canada) or NPL (UK).

High Gloss: 20°
The acute measurement angle of 20° gives improved resolution for high gloss surfaces. Surfaces that measure 70GU and above at the standard angle of 60° are often measured with this geometry.
The 20° angle is more sensitive to haze effects that affect the appearance of a surface.

Universal Measurement Angle: 60° 
All gloss levels can be measured using the standard measurement angle of 60°. This is used as the reference angle with the complimentary angles of 85° and 20° often used for low and high gloss levels respectively.

Low Gloss: 85°
For improved resolution of low gloss a grazing angle of 85° is used to measure the surface. This angle is recommended for surfaces which measure less than 10GU when measured at 60º.
This angle also has a larger measurement spot which will average out 

 

Novo-Gloss 60 degree glossmeter 

The Novo-Gloss 60 degree gloss meter is suitable for measuring gloss in most applications from matt to high gloss finishes.
This high specification handheld glossmeter is suitable for use in many environments including laboratory and production areas and is the ideal choice for general gloss measurements of a variety of substrates and industry sectors including paints and coatings.

Glossmeter features:

  • Ultra-fast measurement time
  • Time and date stamped results
  • Automatic tile detection for faster calibration
  • Full on-board statistics
  • Graphical trend analysis of results for simple reporting.
  • Easy Batching - User definable batch size and names for more efficient measurement of multiple samples
  • Software-free data transfer of measurements and batches
  • Direct data input via Bluetooth - transmit each measured reading directly into Microsoft Excel or other programs
  • Pass / Fail for easy identification of non-conformances
  • Auto-ranging, suitable for measuring matt to mirror finishes
  • Compliant to major international standards such as ASTM D523, ISO 2813, ASTM D2457
  • Calibrate to any standard (from low gloss to mirror finish)

 

Novo-Gloss Dualgloss glossmeters 20/60°

The Novo-Gloss Dualgloss gloss-meter is perfect for basic gloss measurement and is best suited for mid to mirror gloss surfaces (10+ GU @60°)

60° is referred to as the universal measurement angle and is the most commonly specified geometry in applications such as paints, coatings, plastics, automotive interiors and general manufacturing. It can be used as a basic gloss assessment for any surface

20° is the angle selected for high gloss applications such as paints and coatings, polished metals as it gives an improved resolution for high gloss finishes. It is also more sensitive to haze effects that affect the appearance of a surface.

Advanced features including onboard statistics and the ability to download readings, the 20/60° glossmeter is perfect for factory  or laboratory applications
