IG-410 Gloss and Ultra Glossmeter

The latest model glossmeter now checks gloss and ultra-high gloss surface finishes. The new IG-410 measures ultra-high gloss surfaces such as polished metal. This glossmeter has a measurement range that is ten times greater than the conventional model. Now even metallic finishes and substrates can be measured.

Compact, Lightweight and Detachable Probe Design The IG-410 provides fast and reliable measurement with a simple one-touch operation. The LED light source has a useful life span of approximately 100,000 hours for a lifetime of operation. It is truly portable as it is battery-operated and weighs only 1.3 Lbs./350 grams.

Dual Range Extends Measurement Resolution in the Low Gloss Range

The IG-410 has two user-selectable measurement ranges, depending on the sample to be measured. Low gloss samples can be measured using the 0-100 range and high gloss samples can be measured using the 0-1000 range. Two calibration plates are provided to allow the user to follow a simple one-touch calibration procedure to ensure reproducible results.

Measurement Standard for Gloss Value

Gloss value 100 is defined as specular reflectance incident angle θ of the glass of reflectance index 1.567. With incident angle θ = 60º, specular reflectance is 10%, or gloss value 100. Consequently, gloss in specular reflectance 100% is calculated as 1000. Reflectance in many polished metals is 50% or more, some are 90% or more. The measurement range is expanded up to 1000 in the IG-410.
