Byk Micro - Gloss Meter 45 Degree - New Version AG 4567 for ceramic, Plastic, Film: Specific materials require specific measuring angles: Ceramic materials, plastic films and solid plastics, paper, and paperboard either measure specular gloss at the standard geometries 20 Degree, 60 Degree, 85 Degree or at industry-specific geometries 45 Degree or 75 Degree. Plastic films and solid plastics, both opaque and transparent, are often measured at a 45 Degree angle for intermediate and low gloss levels. For films that transmit light, a matt black backing such as "Black scrub panel" cat. no. 5015 (see page 174), must be placed behind the sample. Erroneous measurements will occur without a suitable backing. Standard test methods ask for readings on at least three portions of each specimen to get an indication of gloss uniformity. The statistic model of the micro-gloss will show the average and range of standard deviation as a measure of sample uniformity. Ceramics, porcelain enamels, and other finishes use the 45 Degree geometry and often provide a comparison of their resistance to acid, alkali, or other environmental factors by measurement of gloss loss. In order to evaluate the change of gloss, it is essential to take multiple readings over the entire sample surface and evaluate the average to ensure representative results.
