Glossmeters are employed to measure brightness of printing ink, paints, plastic or paper coatings, of processed wood in the decorative building materials such as marble, granite, glass and all metallic and non-metallic surfaces.
Gloss meter performs measurements on flat surfaces and operates on the principle of a refractometer, that is the measurement of brightness occurs through the reflection of light on a surface. Brightness value is determined by the relationship of reflected light intensity from its point of impact to a reflection internal sensor.
A solid design and practical size of the gloss meter involve great advantages when measuring on site or in factories in manufacturing plants. The recalibration is carried out easily.
