Why you should use a gloss meter in the paint industry?

Painters are always looking for ways to improve the quality of their work. One way they can do so is by using gloss meters in order to find out how much gloss paint has before applying it. This will ensure that the surface is at its perfect level of sheen, which will also allow them to use less material in the process.

When the operating environment changes (such as the rapid change of temperature, altitude, and humidity), then you must do the calibration. In order to ensure accuracy, please use the original standard plate for calibration. The dust on the standard plate will affect calibration accuracy. Please avoid it from strong sunlight. Due to environmental factors, the gloss value of the standard plate will change over time. Therefore, it’s better to send it back to the factory or qualified local National Institute of Metrology for the calibration (Once a year).
