Synonym : Glossometer, Single Angle Glossmeter

Category: Appearance, Coating Inspection, Gloss & Reflectance

Caltech India offers CES-502 Economy Gloss Meter 60°. Gloss is an important aspect of our visual perception of objects. The perception of gloss can relate to a product’s finish, texture and how a sample is illuminated and viewed. Surfaces with high reflectance are perceived as glossy, shiny or lustrous, whilst less reflective surfaces are perceived as semi-gloss or matt. Gloss can be measured by several different techniques. One of them is by using an optical instrument called a gloss meter. A glossmeter provides quantifiable gloss measurements, expressed as gloss units (GU).

CES series gloss meter is independently developed with intellectual property, manufactured according to international standard ISO2813 and China standard GB/T 9754. With auto-calibration and high-end QC software, it can meet the first grade requirements of JJG696.
