Gloss is an important visual property of the object's surface. The degree of light reflected from the object's surface is termed glossiness. However, the perception of glossiness is subjective and depends on the weather conditions, physical abilities to watch person, etc. The Horiba IG-340 gloss checker helps to quantify gloss measurement and perform objective numerical gloss value.

Due to its ergonomic and lightweight design the IG-340 can behold and operated by one hand. High accuracy, repeatability, and precision proved by more than 50,000 units sold worldwide make it indispensable in the object's appearance check and quality control.
