Glossmaster Glossmeter Range

Glossmaster glossmeters - matt to high gloss measurements

The NEW Sheen Glossmaster range of Glossmeters have been designed with the user in mind.

Now offering greater versatility and ease of use, these instruments have far superior data handling capabilities than ever before.

The Glossmaster range has been the unsurpassed industry standard in gloss measurement for many years. It is the only glossmeter combining the highest accuracy, ease-of-use and multiple functionality - essential for today`s testing requirements. In addition, the new smart-chart software is the ideal tool for smart data analysis.

With a new high-resolution colour display this robust, lightweight, portable glossmeter easily tackles most gloss measurement applications.

The new range includes:

New - Tri-Glossmaster 20°/60°/85° Multi-angle Glossmeter (SH260C)

Measure 3 angles simultaneously with one instrument, including a NEW colour display and the powerful downloadable smart-chart software. Easy to calibrate - easy to use - making quality control easier than ever.

NEW - Glossmaster 60° Single-angle Glossmeter (SH262C)

Identical features as the Tri-Glossmaster but with a NEW colour display, measuring a 60° angle.

New colour display: easy to read - easy to use

The smart functions and intuitive menu operation with the new, brilliant colour display make gloss measurement an easy task, allowing quality variations to be recognised quickly and effectively.

Samples can be measured separately at each angle, or at 2/3 angles simultaneously, then effectively processed using the powerful downloadable software.

Smart functions for any task

Different tasks require different tools. The easy to turn scroll wheel quickly shows you all functions - even without a PC. All contained in a compact, sturdy and light weight unit.

Glossmaster modes

The Basic mode is your tool to quickly check the gloss of a few samples.

The Statistic mode not only shows the average, but all statis- tical data needed to judge whether the measured difference is significant or how uniform the surface gloss is on your sample. You define what you want to see: mean, standard deviation, range, min/max ...

The Difference mode allows you to define a reference with Pass/ Fail limits and will compare all of the following measurements to the selected reference. The Pass/ Fail indication is shown in colour on the high resolution display – ideal for production control.

The Continuous mode is the most efficient way to quickly check the uniformity of a large sample surface. You define the measurement interval and are now ready to continuously measure the gloss by sliding the Glossmeter over the surface. When finished, the average with min - max range are displayed.

Data storage, software and analysis

Data can be stored in the large capacity memory or processed on the powerful downloadable smart-chart software.
