Automotive Industry Gloss Meter
The automotive industry invests in delivering quality products with gloss and color levels that have maximum appeal to end customers. Gloss levels vary from
mirror finish chrome parts to very matte "soft touch" internal
plastics. The automotive interior design is getting more and more
important in the purchasing decision. A big challenge for every car
manufacturer is to achieve a "feeling" of high value and at the
same time minimize cost. A variety of materials from leather to
plastics, are used in the automotive field and need to be
harmonized for color and gloss. A design team specifies the color, gloss and grain.
Once a new color or material or process are approved, a new "style"
is born, ready for implementation. In order to guarantee a uniform
look among the various gloss levels in automotive parts, very tight
tolerances are specified. Typical automotive gloss tolerances using a standard 60 degree gloss meter with gloss levels under 5 GU can be 0.3 or 0.5 GU. Visual assessment is impossible with these
tight color and gloss tolerances.
As a starting point, master standard plaques are manufactured by
the automotive customer with usually a flat and several grained
areas. These are sent to the automotive suppliers as their gloss
target to achieve with actual production parts.
As the master plaques and final parts are often made of different
materials, the suppliers work closely with the automotive maker. At
the end, the final approval on color and gloss are given on the
automotive production part. This automotive production part now
becomes the color and gloss standard for the supplier. Instead of
working with absolute gloss numbers from the supplier production
standard, QC needs to be based on the signed-off part. This
procedure eliminates the reproducibility error as gloss is measured
relatively on the sample type of material and same surface.
Since visual assessment of gloss is impossible one must use a
digital gloss meter. Special gloss meters from 3nh with excellent precision are able to objectively control the
Two new methods for improved performance using gloss meters are now
available to improve the accuracy and repeatability when measuring
in the critical 60 degree low gloss range of 0 to 10 GU levels.
High gloss finish paints for bodywork are controlled for gloss
using the 20° angle. Mid-gloss plastic and wood finishes are
controlled using the 60° geometry and matte interior plastics can
also be measured using the 85°. For automotive suppliers measuring
automotive parts from glossy to matte, we have the
TRI gloss meter 268 series
Paints and Coatings Gloss Meter
Most paints and coatings are gloss controlled from formulation,
checked regularly during manufacture and finally during
application. Changes in gloss levels anywhere in this process can
lead to substantial visual differences in batches offered to the
end user. Closely controlling gloss means products are produced
with maximum visual impact and rejections are avoided. The
protective coatings industry monitors gloss during the lifetime of
a coating because as the paint ages its gloss level drops. When it
reaches a preset level the structure is re-painted ensuring that a
maximum lifespan is achieved from the coating without the risk of
corroding the structure it protects. Paints and coatings are
primarily controlled using the 60° degree angle geometry, with the
additional 20° and 85° geometries for high gloss and matte
Furniture Industry Gloss Meter
Furniture can be painted, coated, varnished or stained to any gloss
level from very matte to the highest gloss. Throughout this process
it is necessary to control the gloss of the products for batch
consistency and to check that the coating has been applied and is
Unexpected gloss levels are often an early warning of a problem
with the formulation of a coating, the amount that has been applied
or the way it has cured.
The 60° geometry is standard in the furniture industry with some
customers also specifying the additional 20° and 85° angles. Large
coated surfaces can be checked for gloss variations in seconds
using the "Continuous Read" feature which is standard in every
Rhopoint Gloss meter.
Plastic Industry Gloss Meter
The plastic industry manufactures products of all shapes and sizes
needing gloss measurement. Many of these, including plastic
products for the construction industry such as trim for double
glazed windows, are measured using the 60 degree angle.
Small gloss differences in these products can lead to rejections by
customers and can be an indication of problems in the manufacturing
process or the quality of the raw plastic material.
Metal finishing Gloss Meter
Metallic parts and products are often plated, finished with a
protective coating or polished to make them attractive to the end
user or as a functional protection from corrosion or wear As part
of these processes, gloss is often used as a quality control
measure. In the rolled steel industry a 45° gloss meter is used to
assess the quality of the rolled steel. 60° and 20° gloss meters
are used to check the finish on flat plated and polished metals. An
Imbotec Gloss Sensor can also be used within the process.
It’s also used to assess the polishing on stainless steel pipe or
the visual quality of items with a small surface are such as gold
plated pen nibs or metal watch bracelets.
Polished Stone Gloss Meter
Natural stone is processed to produce items with many different
finishes dependent on their end use. Marble and similar materials
are polished to produce high gloss surfaces where other stone is
left rough and matte in appearance.
The 3nh-Gloss meters are used to ensure batches of stone products
match visually and to optimize the manufacturing process so that
the correct amount of finishing is consistently applied to each
surface. The three angles of our 20/60/85 degree Gloss meters give
maximum flexibility with improved resolution on both matte and high
gloss stone finishes.
Printing Industry Gloss Meter
Gloss is an indispensable measure in the printing industry.
Packaging and magazine covers are regularly UV varnished for a
quality glossy appeal to consumers and company brochures are given
that professional edge with lamination and varnish to give
contrasting matte and gloss effects.
Gloss reduction in a coating can also be an indication of a curing
or drying problem. For example, a drop in the output of UV curing
lamps can have disastrous effects on the quality of printed food
cartons; uncured inks and coatings may rub off the paper or even
contaminate the food the carton is meant to be protecting.
By monitoring the gloss of the UV varnish these problems can be
avoided. The gloss variation across a large printed sheet can be
assessed in seconds using the continuous read feature on our gloss
meters. The gloss of paper is often quantified using a 75° TAPPI
Most gloss levels in this industry are often quantified using the
60° geometry guaranteeing consistency in the visual appearance of
printed and finished products.
Widely used in the filed of
paints,coating,plastics,ink,rubber,printing,paper, glass, handware,
ceramic, marble etc.
