Color and Gloss Unit SPEKTROMASTER565
Color and glossiness are what characterize the appearance of an object. Two samples of the same color but with different glosses do not visually look the same: the glossy surface is perceived as darker and more saturated. Both of these effects must be well controlled in order to achieve a consistent appearance. In comparison with the color meters from other suppliers, the SPEKTROMASTER measures color and gloss at the same time! The reason for any deviation can be clearly determined in any situation
For simultaneous measurement of color and gloss:
With the model Spectromaster 565, the color and gloss measurements are displayed at the simultaneously.
By using following standard:
|Color||DIN 5033, DIN 5036, DIN 6174, ISO 7724, ASTM D 2244, E 308 /E 1164|
|Gloss||DIN 67530, ISO 2813, ISO 7668, ASTM D 523 / ASTM D 2457|
Two methods to perform test:
- Method 1: me45°/0°- For measurements due to the allusion to a visually valued impression. For measurements within the final inspection in automotive related applications.
- Method 2: 8°/d – For color matching/ recipe matters, pigment testing, measurements of color alternation after weathering exposure. Generally also for reception control.
