20º / 60º / 75º Statistical Triple Angle Gloss Meter

20º / 60º / 75º Statistical Triple Angle Gloss Meter

Product Description

The Novo-Gloss 20/60/75ºS gloss meter is a fully featured instrument measuring the gloss of surfaces.

The 60º angle is the reference angle and can be used to measure any surface from matt to mirror finish. To complement this the instrument also has 20º angle for improved measurement on high-gloss surfaces and 75º which gives improved resolution on matt surfaces.

With built in statistical analysis and ‘move and read’ for the checking of large surface areas, the instrument has all the features you will ever need for fast accurate gloss measurement.

The 60º can be used for measuring printed substrates, the 20º gives improved resolution on high-gloss coating and foil boards. The 75º is the standard measurement angle for gloss in the paper industry.
