Wood Wax Oil Gloss Enhancement
Many users don't know much about the gloss of wood wax oil. Here is a brief introduction to the glossiness measurement and improvement methods of wood wax oil gloss.
1. What is the gloss of wood wax oil?
At present, there is no grading standard specifically for wood wax oil, so you can refer to the "GB / T9754-2007 Paints and varnished-Dertermination of specular gloss of non-metallic paint films at 20 °, 60 ° and 85 °" standard.
The 60 ° gloss measurement angle can be applied to all paint films, but for highly glossy and nearly matte paint films, 20 ° or 85 ° may be more suitable.
The 20 °gloss measurement angle (using a smaller receiver hole) can provide better resolution in the case of high gloss paint films (gloss is higher than 70 GU when measuring by a 60 ° paint gloss tester).
The 85 °gloss measurement angle provides better resolution in the case of low gloss paint films (gloss is lower than 10 GU when measuring by a 60 ° paint gloss tester).
Wood wax oil generally comes in two types, matte and semi-matt, but wood oil is shiny. But even glossiness can not be indexed with paint, because wood wax oil penetrates into the wood texture. In summary, wood wax oil has gloss, but it is not as bright as paint.

The display interface can display the real-time value,maximum value, minimum value and standard deviation value, current recorded value and the number of measurements and statistics.
After testing the wood wax oil, close the instrument to the base of the standard board and it will shut down automatically in 15 seconds.
The paint gloss tester LS191 does not require to press any buttons during the test, as long as the instrument is placed on the tested material, the test data will be displayed immediately.
You can record the current test data and automatically calculate the real-time value,maximum value, minimum value and standard deviation value. The smaller the standard deviation value, the more uniform the gloss of the wood wax oil.
Paint gloss tester LS191 can be used in the paint industry, ink, plastics, paper, ceramic tiles, stone, car maintenance, molding molds, metal coatings and other industries.
