The Novo-Gloss 20/60/75ºS gloss meter is a fully featured instrument measuring the gloss of surfaces.


The 60º angle is the reference angle and can be used to measure any surface from matt to mirror finish. To complement this the instrument also has 20º angle for improved measurement on high-gloss surfaces and 75º which gives improved resolution on matt surfaces.

With built in statistical analysis, memory and the ability to download results to a PC the instrument has all the features you will ever need for fast accurate gloss measurement.

The 60º can be used for measuring printed substrates, the 20º gives improved resolution on high-gloss coating and foil boards. The 75º TAPPI is the standard measurement angle for gloss in the paper industry.
