Specific materials require specific measuring angles: Ceramic materials, plastic films and solid plastics, paper and paperboard either measure specular gloss at the standard geometries 20°, 60°, 85° or at industry specific geometries 45° or 75°.
Especially coated paper, but also a variety of uncoated papers request gloss control. The 75° geometry is suitable for most ink films on paper and paperboard. Color differences have a negligible influence on measured gloss. For example, a white surface will measure less than one gloss unit higher than an otherwise identical black surface.
Very high gloss papers (lacquered, highly varnished or waxed) should use a 20° measurement geometry. As defined in the TAPPI standard for batch QC at least ten test specimens free from folds or wrinkles or other imperfections are to be checked. The smart-lab Gloss software is ideal to document and communicate the measurement results. Its project management can be used to record the quality of one material over time and send the data either by PDF or Excel to all involved parties.
Another typical material to be tested for specular gloss using the 75° geometry is vinyl siding made principally from rigid PVC and is used to clad exterior walls of buildings.
In order to evaluate the uniformity over large areas, the “Continuous mode” of the micro-gloss will display the gloss values in a predefined measurement interval while moving the instrument over the surface.
