The GM1 Gloss Meter optically measures surface gloss on a variety of surfaces, including powder coating and paints (including automotive paint). The electronic meter follows international standard ISO2813 for gloss measurement of paint films. Its 60 degree measuring angle means it is suitable for checking a wide range of levels of reflectivity, providing flexibility and a broad range of use.
This competitively priced digital gloss meter has a range of 0 to 200GU – double that of some meters that cost over five times as much. It also conveniently features user replaceable batteries, eliminating the inconvenience of internal battery deterioration and unexpected downtime due to lack of charge.
The GM1 glossmeter is also quick and easy to use – simply power on the meter with the red button, place it against the surface to be tested, press the yellow button, and the gloss level is immediately displayed on the LCD screen. The user does not need to navigate complicated menu settings using multiple buttons. This helps to speed up measurements, reduces the risk of mistakes, and enhances usability. The meter can be calibrated with the included calibration piece.
