Standard Model 59600-05 with 3-digit LCD is switch-selectable for a standard 60° measurement angle or a 20° angle for measuring high-gloss surfaces.
Use these gloss meters to evaluate glossy coated surfaces of construction materials, printed materials, and more! These digital gloss meters use an infrared source that emits a beam of light at an angle to the surface; a sensor measures the reflected light. Protective lens cap has a black glass reference for autocalibration. Automatic shutoff extends battery life. Meters include lens cap, lens cleaning cloth, and a soft carrying case.
Features hold function. Sensor is separate from meter for measuring hard-to-reach surfaces; includes 1-ft coiled connection cable. Meter operates on four 1.5 V AAA batteries (included).
Note: We do not recommend using these meters for measuring polished metals.
