A1: What is a gloss meter?
Q1: Gloss meters are used to measure the surface gloss of materials. A gloss meter is used to measure the reflectance of light on the surface of an object, that is, the specular gloss. Depending on the angle of incidence selected during measurement, the results are also different. The larger the angle of incidence, the higher the specular reflectance, the higher the gloss, and vice versa.
A2: What are the measurement angles of the gloss meter?
Q2: Gloss meter, mainly contains three measuring angles, respectively 20 °, 60 °, and 85 °, different measuring angles for different glossy object surfaces.
A3: How to choose the measuring angle of the gloss meter?
Q3: For different object surfaces, the suitable measurement angle is not the same, general materials, generally use a 60 ° gloss meter can be measured, high gloss materials, you can choose a 20 ° gloss meter, for low gloss materials, you can choose 85 ° gloss meter.
Tips: Notes on using sisco gloss meter
- The sisco gloss meter is a precision measuring instrument. During measurement, avoid drastic changes in the external environment of the gloss meter. For example, avoid flickering of ambient light, rapid temperature changes, etc. during measurement. When measuring gloss, keep the gloss meter stable, and the measurement port should be close to the object to be measured to avoid shaking and shifting.
- The gloss meter is not waterproof and cannot be used in high-humidity environments or in water mist.
- Keep the gloss meter clean and tidy. Avoid liquid, powder or solid foreign objects such as water and dust from entering the measuring aperture and the inside of the instrument.
- Avoid collision with the gloss meter.
- Turn off the gloss meter in time after use, and keep the gloss meter and calibration plate properly.
- The gloss meter should be stored in a dry and cool environment.
- Users are not allowed to change the gloss meter without authorization. Any unauthorized changes may affect the accuracy of the gloss meter or even cause irreversible damage.
