An Introduction to Gloss Measurement

1.       What is Gloss?

2.       What difference in gloss units is visible to the human eye?

3.       Why Measure Gloss?

4.       How is Gloss Measured? 

1)                 What is Gloss?

Gloss is an aspect of the visual perception of objects.

Gloss is the attribute of surfaces that causes them to have shiny or lustrous, metallic or mat appearances.

Gloss is a visual impression that is caused when a surface is evaluated. The more direct light is reflected, the more obvious will be the impression of gloss.

 

Gloss effects are based on the interaction of light with the physical properties of the sample surface. The other influencing component is the physiological evaluation scale. The human eye is still the best tool to evaluate gloss differences. However, the visual surface control is insufficient, because evaluation conditions are not clearly defined, and people see and judge differently

In addition, the subjective perception of appearance is dependent on the personal experience: what is glossy for a paper manufacturer might be dull for an automotive maker. Gloss is measured by focusing on the reflected image and not by focusing on the surface. Eyesight and mood have a decisive role in the visual judgment. Also, important is what our eye is focused on. We evaluate a surface by focusing our eye on a reflected image of a light source. In order to guarantee a reliable and practical quality assurance it is necessary to define appearance with objective, measurable criteria. Accurate characterization of appearance does not only help to control quality, but improves quality and optimizes manufacturing processes.

High Gloss
A
 smooth and highly polished surfaces reflect images distinctly. The incident light is directly reflected on the surface, i.e. only in the main direction of reflection. The angle of incidence is equal to the angle of reflection.

Semi/Medium Gloss
O
n rough surfaces the light is diffusely scattered in all directions. The image forming qualities are diminished: A reflected object does no longer appear brilliant, but blurred.
The more uniform the light is scattered, the less intense is the reflection in the main direction and the duller the surface will appear.

High and Semi Gloss  

One Gloss meter does double work.

Low Gloss or Mat

On very rough surfaces the light is diffusely scattered in all directions. The image forming qualities are much diminished: A reflected object no longer appears brilliant, but almost non-existent.

Measure all three modes Simultaneously

When one requires measuring all three types of surfaces described above, we 3 angle gloss meters that simultaneously measures all three geometries.

All three modes plus Coating Thickness NFe/Fe (under development)

Our gloss meter incorporates all the technological advances into one unit offering a unique package in an economical package. The micro-tri-gloss µ has everything you require in one compact gloss and coating thickness meter.

Measure small rounded objects or small areas (under development)

2)                 What difference in gloss units is visible to the human eye?

If two different coatings are measured, what number of gloss units would be detectable by the human eye, how many units would be perceived as significantly different?

When measuring at 60 Degrees these detectable differences depend on the gloss level of the sample, for instance 3.0 GU difference measured on a very matt surface (perhaps 5GU), would be seen by the human eye but on a higher gloss coating (perhaps 60 GU) the difference would be very difficult to notice.

The only way that you can determine tolerances for your products would be experimentally, perhaps preparing printed samples at different gloss levels that you can show to end users of your coatings or internal “experts”

The other option is to change to a 20/60/85 degree instrument, the 85 degree glossmeter is more sensitive to differences in gloss below 10 GU @ 60º and the 20 Degrees has higher resolution on high gloss coatings (above 70 GU @ 60º). The advantage of using the three angles is that there is more equality to the gloss differences, in our experience a gloss difference of 5 GU, when measured with the correct geometry is just visible to a trained observer.

3)                 Why measure gloss?

Gloss is an aspect of the visual perception of objects that is as important as colour when considering the psychological impact of products on a consumer. It has been defined as the attribute of surfaces that causes them to have shiny or lustrous, metallic appearance.

The gloss of a surface can be greatly influenced by a number of factors, for example the smoothness achieved during polishing, the amount and type of coating applied or the quality of the substrate. Manufacturers design their products to have maximum appeal- highly reflective car body panels, gloss magazine covers or satin black designer furniture.

It is important therefore that gloss levels are achieved consistently on every product or across different batches of products. Gloss can also be a measure of quality of a surface, for instance a drop in the gloss of a coated surface may indicate problems with its cure- leading to other failures such as poor adhesion or lack of protection for the coated surface.

It is for these reasons that many manufacturing industries monitor the gloss of their products, from cars, printing and furniture to food, pharmaceuticals and consumer electronics.

4)                 How is gloss measured?

Gloss is measured by shining a known amount of light at a surface and quantifying the reflectance. The angle of the light and the method by which the reflectance is measured are determined by the surface. Gloss is determined using a Gloss Meter which directs a light at a specific angle to the test surface and simultaneously measures the amount of reflection. The type of surface to be measured determines the gloss meter angle to be used and thus the gloss meter model. The intensity is dependent on the material and the angle of illumination. In case of nonmetals (coatings, plastics) the amount of reflected light increases with the increase of the illumination angle. The remaining illuminated light penetrates the material and is absorbed or diffusely scattered dependent on the color.

 

Gloss Meter

A glossmeter measures specular reflection. The light intensity is registered over a small range of a pre-defined reflection angle.

The intensity is dependent on the material and the angle of illumination. In case of nonmetals (coatings, plastics) the amount of reflected light increases with the increase of the illumination angle. The remaining illuminated light penetrates the material and is absorbed or diffusely scattered dependent on the color.
Metals have a much higher reflection and are less angle dependent than non metals.

Metals have a much higher reflection and are less angle dependent than non metals. The measurement results of a glossmeter are related to the amount of reflected light from a black glass standard with a defined refractive index, and not to the amount of incident light. The measurement value for this defined standard is equal to 100 gloss units.
Materials with a higher refractive index can have a measurement value above 100 gloss units (GU), e.g. films. In case of transparent materials the measurement value can be increased due to multiple reflections in the bulk of the material. Due to the high reflection capabilities of metals values of up to 2000 GU can be reached. For these applications it is common to document the measurement results in % reflection of the illuminated light. Glossmeters and their handling procedures had to be internationally specified to allow comparison of measurement values. The angle of illumination is of high influence. In order to obtain a clear differentiation over the complete measurement range from high gloss to matte, 3 different geometries, i.e. 3 different ranges, were defined using a 60° gloss meter.

In addition, there are industry specific applications for 45° and 75° measurement geometry. In this case study, 13 samples were visually ranked from matte to high gloss and measured with the 3 specified geometries. In the steep slopes of the curves the differences between the samples can be clearly measured, while in the flat part the measurement geometry no longer correlates with the visual. Gloss measurement for any application, whether you are dealing with specific applications or need a universal solution from high luster to a matte gloss sample or a small curved surface, ShowRange can help through their knowledge and complete line of solutions.

b.       Low Gloss Surface

c.       High Gloss Surface

d.       Small Surface Area

e.       Irregular Surfaces or Curved Surfaces

f.        Cylindrical Surfaces with Jig for Cylinders and Rolls

2.       Gloss Meter Selection by # of Angles Required or Geometries

3.       Gloss Meter Selection by Industry.

 

1)                 Gloss Meter Selection by Surface Characteristic

ISO 2813 and ASTM D523 (the most commonly used standards) describe three measurement angles for the measurement of gloss across surfaces of all levels. The standard gloss unit (GU) is used; this is traceable to standards held at BAM (Germany), NRC (Canada) or NPL (UK).

a) Semi Gloss – 60 degree - Universal Measurement Angle for Gloss Meters

All gloss levels can be measured using the standard measurement angle of 60 degree. This is used as the reference angle with the complimentary angles of 85º and 20º often used for low and high gloss levels respectively.

b) Low Gloss – 85 degree

For improved resolution of low gloss, the 85 degree angle is recommended for surfaces which measure less than 10 GU when measured at 60 degree. This angle also has a larger measurement spot which will average out differences in the gloss of textured or slightly uneven surfaces.

c) High Gloss – 20 degree

The acute measurement angle of 20 degree gives improved resolution for high gloss surfaces. Surfaces that measure 70 GU and above at the standard angle of 60 degree are often measured with the 20 degree geometry.

High glossy surfaces can be affected by another characteristic called, “Haze”. Thus the 20 degree angle measurement is more sensitive to haze effects. These affect the appearance of a surface.

d) Small Surface Areas

The curve gloss meter resolves the gloss differences across holograms and the polish on coins, steering wheels and extruded pipe work. The curve gloss meter has a very small measurement spot of 2mm.

e) Irregular Surfaces or Curved Surfaces

When irregular or textured surfaces are measured, the small measurement area can give different gloss values compared to a standard meter that has larger measurement area. To produce comparable results, take 10 measurements on the Curved Surface Gloss Meter and use the statistic function to calculate the average reading.

f) Cylindrical Surfaces w/Jig for Cylinders and Rolls

All standard gloss meters are designed for flat surfaces, if they are used on a curved surface, the measurement beam is reflected away from the instrument detector resulting in incorrect readings. The solution to this problem is to using a very small area. The light is slightly scattered by the curved surface, however as long as the reflected beam remains sufficiently narrow to remain within the instrument detector the reading will be correct. The Curve with Jig Gloss Meter is specified for measuring cylinders and spheres with very low diameters. The Curve with Jig Gloss Meter was developed in conjunction with the National Physics Laboratory (NPL).

 

2)                 Gloss Meter Selection by Angles or Geometry

Now you should know which angle is appropriate for your application and industry. We have a selection grid for you to choose from.

Single angle instruments are available in each of the measurement geometries (20/60 and 85 degree).

Dual Angle instruments give improved performance for medium to high gloss applications with a geometry of 20 degree and 60 degree in one unit.

Triple angle instruments have an additional geometry; the 85 degree geometry for improved resolution on low gloss surfaces offering you the 20/60/85 degree.

3)                 Gloss Meter Selection by Industry

Many industries measure gloss to ensure the quality of their products. It has been shown that the gloss level of a product has as much psychological impact on a consumer as its color. Many products are designed with combinations of high gloss and matt finishes, maximizing their customer appeal.

 

Surface quality can often be assessed by measuring gloss. For example poorly cured paints or coatings can exhibit unusual gloss levels and can lead to chipping and flaking at a later stage in manufacture.

 

ShowRange has gloss meters in single, dual and triple angle format, making www.china-total.com the company with the largest range of Gloss Meters with the most comprehensive range of instruments on the market today.

 

Automotive Industry Gloss Meter

The car industry invests in delivering products with gloss levels that have maximum appeal to end customers. Gloss levels vary from mirror finish chrome parts to very matt “soft touch” internal plastics. High gloss finish paints for bodywork are controlled for gloss using the 20 degree angle. Mid-gloss plastic and wood finishes are controlled using the 60 degree geometry and matt interior plastics using the 85 degree.

Curved parts such as steering wheels, exhausts, chromed fittings and switches are measured using the Curve Gloss Meter.

 

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 in the process can lead to substantial visual differences in batches offered to the end user. Closely controlling gloss means 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 60º degree angle geometry, with the additional 20º and 85º geometries for high gloss and matt coatings.

 

Furniture Industry Gloss Meter

Furniture can be painted, coated, varnished or stained to any gloss level from very matt 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 drying correctly.

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 60º geometry is standard in the furniture industry with some customers also specifying the additional 20º and 85º angles. Large coated surfaces can be checked for gloss variations in seconds using the "Continuous Read" feature which is standard in every ShowRange Gloss meter.

 

Plastic Industry Gloss Meter

The plastic industry manufactures products of all shapes and sizes needing gloss measurement. 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.

Extruded pipe work is controlled using the Curve with Jig Gloss Meter which is designed for curved surfaces. Small injection molded parts, such as PDA or mobile phone parts are often curved or have an area that is too small to be measured with traditional gloss meters. The Curve Gloss Meter is used for these components.

 

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.

Gloss is often used as a quality control measure. The 60 degree and 20 degree glossmeters are used to check the finish on flat plated and polished metals.

The Curve Gloss Meter is also used for the polish of stainless steel pipe and for small surfaces are such as gold plated pen nibs or metal watch bracelets.

 

Polished Stone Gloss Meter

Natural stone is processed to produce items with many finishes dependent on their end use. Marble and similar materials are polished to produce high gloss surfaces where other stone is left rough and matt in appearance.
Glossmeters are used to ensure batches of stone products match visually and to optimize the amount of finishing is consistently applied to each surface.

The three angles of our 20/60/85 degree gloss meter give maximum flexibility on both matt 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 matt 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° glossmeter.
Most gloss levels in this industry are often quantified using the 60° geometry guaranteeing consistency in the visual appearance of printed and finished products.
