The instrument benefits from the Novo-Gloss technology, it is small lightweight and is complete with statistical analysis and can download saved readings to PC.

Glossmeter Measurement Theory

Novo-Gloss-45-measuring-film

Novo-Gloss 45 glossmeter measuring film over a matt black background (recommended test method)

Features:

Automatic recognition of instrument calibration tile

When calibrating the instrument to the matched calibration tile, the instrument will also detect if the calibrated values do not match the actual stored values. This will highlight any scratches or contamination on the calibration tile which indicate that it should be cleaned / replaced.
