The IG-331 provides a measured value to confirm visual gloss observations reducing human error.
High-Efficiency Measurements Enables Easy Switching of Measuring Angles (60° and 20°)
The flexible, remote connection of the probe to the display unit ensures greater work efficiency and safety in all applications. Guaranteeing uniform production quality and standards for gloss measurement. HORIBA's IG-331 Gloss Checker displays gloss measurements as numerical data, eliminating ambiguity and ensuring objective evaluation of a product's quality. Compact in design and ready when powered on, all the user needs to do is hold the lightweight IG-331 sensing head against the surface being evaluated for quality control of paints, polishes, floor maintenance and many other industrial applications while reading the numbers on the display attached to the head by a long telephone style coiled cord.
Just press the calibration key (CAL) to start automatic, calibration.
Selectable Measuring Angle (60° or 20°)
Choose 60° for standard gloss measurements. For high-gloss surfaces with gloss values between 70 to 100, simply switch to the 20° measuring angle. The selectable angle feature makes it easy to measure highly glossy surfaces.
For gloss quality control testing of painted surfaces, exposure panel gloss level testing, and gloss and luster testing of the coating.
