The KSJ MG6-S1 Gloss Meter is a compact, lightweight, easy to use 60º angle gloss meter that can be used for most inspection applications such as coatings, paints, plastics, polished stone and manufactured products. Calright Instruments laboratory technicians verified the MG6-S1 with internal laboratory repeatability tests and sales history data to determine the reliability of this product.
The simple design allows the user to easily place the gloss meter on the surface of flat materials and immediately begin taking continuous measurements. The results will be displayed in Gloss Units (GU) that the user can then quickly determine if the material meets established acceptance criteria set by manufacturer or simply measure the difference between two sample materials.
The MG6 Series are designed and manufactured according to ISO 2813 and GB9754 and meet the following standards: ASTM D2457, ASTM D523, GB/T13891, GB7706 and GB8807. Technical parameters conform with JJG696-2002.
While using the 60º angle gloss meter, the scale shown below can be used to determine the estimated Gloss Unit (GU) range to be expected and recommendations for improvements.
|Gloss Range||Gloss Unit (GU) 60° Angle||Recommendation|
|High Gloss||Above 70 GU||Use 20° angle for improved measurement results*|
|Medium/ Semi-gloss||10 to 70 GU||Continue to use 60° angle|
|Low/ Matte Gloss||Below 10 GU||Use 85° angle for improved measurement results*|
*Dual angle and triple angle models are available
Gloss meters are available with internal data storage and quality control software to assist in reporting results or quickly identify non-conforming material that does not meet programmed acceptance criteria.
