Gloss and Haze measurement is essential where an aesthetic appearance of the coating finish is required and to ensure uniformity of the surface finish.
The gloss value is determined by directing a light, which has a similar wavelength to the human eye, at the test surface and
measuring the amount of specular reflection. Gloss is
measured with angles of 60° and 20°. The 60° angle is
universal for all applications. The 20° angle gives improved differentiation of measurement on high-gloss coatings above 70 gloss units.
Haze measurement is required where high-gloss surfaces have
a low reflection contrast. The Haze measurement is the
difference between readings taken with the 20° and 60°
angles, complying with International Standard ASTM D4039. The Stargloss will automatically calculate the Haze reading.
The Haze function is only available on combined 60°/20° models.
Small and portable, the Stargloss is one of the most advanced Gloss Meters available. By using tungsten halogen lamps and
optical filters the light source has a similar spectro-response to the human eye, giving true human photo-optic performance, which is essential for ensuring exact compliance to
International Standards. Optical bench accuracy and stability are obtained by the optics being set in a precision-engineered aluminium block.
Available in models of Standard and Top. All functions are easily accessible through a menu-driven back-lit display.
Magnetic Method (Fe): Measuring the thickness of non- magnetic coatings on steel, iron and other ferromagnetic metal substrates, e.g. painting, varieties of anti-corrosion coating, powder spraying, plastic, rubber, synthetic material, phosphate coating, chromium, zinc, Aluminum, tin and cadmium, etc.
Eddy Current Method (NFe): measuring the thickness of non-conductive coatings on copper, aluminum, stainless steel and other non-ferromagnetic substrates, e.g. painting, varieties of anti-corrosion coating, powder spraying, plastic, rubber, synthetic material, oxide film and phosphate film, etc.

Magnetic Method (F-type probe)
When the probe contacts the cover layer, the probe and magnetic substrate forms a closed magnetic circuit; Due to the presence of non-magnetic coating, magnetic resistance changes. The thickness of the cover layer can be derived by measuring the change.
Eddy Current Method (NF-type probe)
When the probe contacts the cover layer, the probe and non-magnetic substrate forms Eddy Current and gives feedback to the coil inside the probe.
The thickness of the cover layer can be derived by measuring the feedback.
