What is Glossmeter used for ? What can be measured by Glossmeter ?
Glossmeter is a device used to measure the gloss of painted surfaces or materials such as glass, mirror, shiny sheet, etc.
Gloss is an important aspect of our visual perception of objects. The perception of gloss can relate to a product’s finish, texture and how a sample is illuminated and viewed. Surfaces with high reflectance are perceived as glossy, shiny or lustrous, whilst less reflective surfaces are perceived as semi-gloss or matt. Gloss can be measured by several different techniques. One of them is by using an optical instrument called a gloss meter. A glossmeter provides quantifiable gloss measurements, expressed as gloss units (GU).
