How to Measure Car Glossiness?
1. What does the gloss of the car clothing mean?
Stealth jersey is a new type of environmentally friendly film that is very popular now. Because the transparency of the jersey is high enough, it can protect the gloss of the paint surface from decaying. Colleagues make the paint surface a protective film physically. Therefore, the glossiness of the clothing we often say refers to the gloss characteristics displayed after the car covers the clothing, which can be directly measured by a gloss meter.
Due to the difference in quality of the car clothing, the gloss of the original car will change. If it is high-quality car clothing, the transparency is very high, it can be excellent fusion of the original car. It will affect the original color and the gloss of the car paint. Inferior car clothing, its lack of transparency may cause the car paint to appear color difference and reduce gloss. Using a precise gloss meter, you can accurately assess the quality of different garments.
2. Testing method of car glossiness
Users who want to accurately measure the gloss of different brands of clothing can use a gloss meter to detect the specific gloss of different brands of clothing.
3. What is a gloss meter?
Gloss meter (also known as glossmeter) is an instrument used to measure the specular reflection (such as gloss) of the object surface. Gloss is determined by projecting a light beam onto a surface at a fixed intensity and angle and measuring the amount of reflected light at equal but opposite angles.
4. How to choose the measurement angle?
Measuring angles of 20 °, 60 ° and 85 ° can measure the gloss of most coatings. The angle is selected based on the gloss range of the object. We can use 60 degree angle gloss meter to measure the object. If the gloss exceeds 70GU, we can use 20 degree angle gloss meter. If the gloss is less than 20GU, an 85-degree angle gloss meter can be used. If you can't judge the surface gloss of the object you need to measure, you can buy a universal 60 degree angle gloss meter. With the continuous improvement of the gloss meter's resolution, the measurement angle of 60 degrees can meet the measurement requirements of most objects.
5. Linshang gloss meter test the glossiness of car clothing
For testing the specific gloss of car clothing, it is recommended to use Linshang LS192 portable gloss meter. This gloss meter is a glossiness measurement tool with a measurement range of up to 1000GU. It can be used to test the surface gloss of paints, coatings, inks, plastics, paper, ceramic tiles, ceramics, stone, metal and electroplated products. The test data is comparable to the German BYK gloss meter. Using the Linshang LS192 gloss meter can accurately detect the specific gloss of the clothing to ensure and control the quality of the car clothing.
