       The gloss meter, as the saying goes, is an instrument used to measure the object surface gloss.

Below we will mainly introduce you things you want to know when purchasing a gloss meter, summarized as follows:

  1. 1. Can the 60 degree gloss meter measure the orange paint or powder gloss?

  3. 3. Will the strong light environment affect the measurement of the gloss meter? How to deal with it?

            Light-transmitting materials will be affected and opaque materials won’t be affected. For the light-transmitting materials, when using the gloss meter to measure, try to avoid the place where the light is strong. If you want to avoid this situation, you can use black velvet to cover the measurement port.
