Aluminum and its alloys can form an oxide film on the surface by anodizing. Its surface gloss can be measured by a gloss detector.

In order to ensure that the appearance of the anodized product meets the requirements, we need to measure the gloss of the anode product by gloss detector.

1. How to control the gloss of anode products?

During the preparation of anodized products, due to the gap in manufacturing process, color and gloss deviations may occur. Through a professional gloss detector, the gloss of the anode product can be detected to control the anode process. The gloss control requirements are reversed based on the customer's surface gloss requirements after the anode, such as: the surface gloss after the anode is required to be 40 +/- 8; then according to the actual anode conditions, the pre-treatment gloss may be 280-320; There are two points in the actual pre-processing control: A. The incoming gloss should be stable; B. Confirm the pre-treatment conditions according to the incoming gloss, such as the time for polishing.

2. Affecting factors of anode gloss

There are many factors affecting the anode products gloss, including raw materials, treatment potions, treatment time, treatment temperature and so on.

  1. When the material is oxidized, the effect of the treatment will be different due to factors such as the composition of the medicine, content, concentration, temperature, treatment time and other factors;

  2. In the closed coloring process of the product, due to the color difference that has existed during the production of the material pre-treatment, the difficulty of sample matching, color matching and color adjustment increases;

  3. The metal element content and material texture of different batches of raw aluminum plates cannot be consistent. It is difficult to achieve the same effect as the model after multiple adjustments and sample evaluation during coloring.

3. The gloss measurement method of anode products

Through the high-precision Linshang LS192 gloss detector, you can easily measure the gloss of anode products. Linshang LS192 gloss detector can be used for the surface gloss test of paints, coatings, inks, plastics, paper, tiles, ceramics, stone, metal and electroplated layers. The test range can reach 1000GU and the test data can be comparable to the German BYK gloss detector.

LS192 gloss detector features:

  1. The gloss detector has temperature compensation and stable values, allowing long-term calibration.

  2. The gloss detector displays the real time gloss value

  3. The gloss detector has self-diagnosis function

  4. Ultra-compact design

  5. The gloss detector displays real-time value, maximum value, minimum value, average value and standard deviation value at the same time.

  6. The gloss detector supports USB transmission and comes with operating software, which can be operated online with the computer and complete the test report.

  7. Built-in rechargeable battery. It can be used for more than 48 hours after being charged once.

Therefore, we can use the ls 192 gloss detector to detect and control the specific gloss of anode products.
