  • Q:

    Can the device measure sheen of food sauces/pastes that are in wet/fluid form? If not, is there any accessory that can be used to protect the device for taking measurements on non-dried materials?

    • STAFF EXPERT

      A:

      This unit cannot be adapted to work with non-solids. It requires a hard surface to take a reading.

  • Q:

    How are these units calibrated?
    Asked on 12/19/2011 by Red

    1 answer

    • STAFF EXPERT

      A:

      Each unit comes with a reference standard included in the protection cap that will produce a reading of ~90 with this meter. The actual calibration value is marked on the reference plate and should be met within plus or minus one gloss unit.

  • Q:

    Is this unit able to record and store data or is it only visual on the screen?

      A:

      This model displays gloss measurements for one object at a time while you are measuring it. Model IG-331, our 59600-10 has data storage for 99 sample readings. Neither model has an output to a computer.

  • Q:

    Could this device measure the gloss of an adhesive paste? - the theory being that the glossier the paste the more homogeneous it is(so the readout would be a gauge of effectiveness of mixing)?
    Asked on 8/1/2011 by Shadow from Cambridge, UK

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      If the paste was dry it would work. The meter must come into contact with the surface being tested to block out other light and get a good reading.

  • Q:

    Is this capable of measuring gloss on a plastic surface (PE/PP/Styrenic), with and without texture?
    Asked on 5/10/2011 by Rob from Cobourg, ON

    1 answer

    • STAFF EXPERT

      A:

      This unit can be used to measure gloss on plastic surfaces as well as plates, stones, tile and enamel. The surface to be measured should be flat. Surfaces that are rough or curved may not measure properly.

  • Q:

    The US Navy is asking us to measure the gloss on a series of parts that we're building. Is this unit capable of doing that?
    Asked on 3/15/2011 by Anonymous

    1 answer

    • STAFF EXPERT

      A:

      Yes, provided the surface is not a polished metal, but is paint, ink, plating, etc.

  • Q:

    I inspect hardwood floors that have been installed. Often the homeowner feels that the gloss levels are inconsistent, (factory finish), from one carton to the other, or that the gloss level of the sample is different from that which is delivered/installed. Will this meter be able to read differences in clear urethane coating(s), one vs. the other, one recieveing a "c" grade, the other a "k", grade?
    Asked on 1/25/2011 by FloorDoc from Sacramento, CA

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      This meter will give you a reading from 0-100 gloss units. I suggest contacting the manufacturer to check what their tolerance levels are of the gloss level of their products.
