The gloss testing equipment, also known as the gloss meter, is used to measure the gloss of object surface. It consists of a light source, a lens, a receiver, a data processing section and an LCD. The principle is to illuminate the sample under the specified incident angle and the specified beam condition to obtain the beam in the direction of the mirror reflection angle. And then digitize the intensity of the reflected beam and calculate the gloss of the material by the gloss formula.
The gloss testing equipment measurement angles consist of low gloss of 85 degree, high gloss of 20 degree and the most commonly used 60 degree of gloss. 60 degree gloss testing equipment, the common range is 0~1000GU and 0~200GU. For example, LS192 measurement range is up to 1000GU, while the LS191 gloss testing equipment has a range of 200GU. Prices are also different.
The upper gloss testing equipment is widely used in the gloss measurement of paints and coatings in automobiles, home appliances, musical instruments, furniture and other industries.
The Linshang gloss testing equipment is in line with: ISO7668, ISO2813, ASTM D2457, ASTM D523, DIN 67530, GB/T9754, GB/T7706, GB/T13891, GB/T8807. All the indicators of the instrument have reached the requirements of the first-class working machine in China.
