Product Description

As an Authorized dealer we are engaged in providing the broad assortment of wide gamut of Colour Appearance test and measurement instruments.

Gloss meter have different kinds of measurement angles. Generally, 20° used for High Gloss Materials, 60° used for Medium Gloss Materials, 85° used for Low Gloss Materials. Two additional angles are used for other materials. An angle of 45° is specified for the measurement of ceramics, films, textiles and anodised aluminium, whilst 75° is specified for paper and printed materials.

Metal finishing Gloss Meter

Metallic parts and products are often plated, finished with a protective coating or polished to make them attractive to the end user or as a functional protection from corrosion or wear As part of these processes, gloss is often used as a quality control measure. In the rolled steel industry a 45° gloss meter is used to assess the quality of the rolled steel. 60° and 20° gloss meters are used to check the finish on flat plated and polished metals.



ASTM D2457 1990
Test Method for Specular Gloss of Plastic Films and Solid Plastics Specifies the primary standard as a perfect mirror with a defined gloss value of 1000. 20°, 60° and 45°; the 45° method is as ASTM C346 for ceramics.


S6161: Part 12 1987
Methods of test for anodic oxidation coatings on aluminium and its alloys - measurement of specular reflectance and specular gloss at angles of 20°, 45°, 60° or 85°

Ref. Std BS 3900: Part D5 (1980); technically equivalent to ISO 7668; replaces BS 1615:1972. At 45°, dimensions of source image and receptor aperture are as for 60°. Squares with sides equal to the shorter sides of the rectangles are also recommended. Alternatively, total reflection in a 45° prism is used as a reference; source image and receptor aperture are then circular, both with angular diameter 3.44°± 0.23° (1.5 mm ± 0.1 mm at 25.4 mm focal length)

IS0 7668 1986
Anodized aluminum and aluminum alloys - measurement of specular reflectance and specular gloss at angles of 20°, 45°, 60° or 85°.

ASTM C346 1987
Test method for 45° specular gloss of ceramic materials
