Elcometer introduces the new Elcometer 407L Dual


and Triple Angle Glossmeter. Manchester, UK – Elcometer are pleased


to announce the launch of their new range of dual and triple angle glossmeters, the Elcometer 407L.


Combining accurate gloss measurement with state of the art electronics the new Elcometer 407L Dual and Triple Angle Glossmeters have the ability to measure almost any surface finish – from high gloss to matt - at different measurement angles (20, 60 and 85 degree reflective angles).


The individual gloss measurement values, together with the date and time of measurement, can be stored into the Elcometer 407L’s internal memory. On board statistics provide the user with the highest, lowest, average and standard deviation for each batch of data.


User definable limits provide the User with instant feedback whether the surface finish is acceptable or


should be rejected.


All Elcometer 407L glossmeters have USB and Bluetooth®


data output which allows readings


to download to the ElcoMaster™ 2.0 Data Man- agement Software (supplied with each gauge). Users can now generate instant professional gloss


For more information on the range of Elcometer 407L dual and triple angled glossmeters, please contact Elcometer at sales@elcometer.com or visit our website at www.elcometer.com

About Gloss Measurement


The ability of a surface to reflect light without scattering is known as gloss. Gloss is measured by directing a constant intensity light beam at a fixed angle to the test surface and the subsequent amount of reflected light, at the same angle, is determined and represented by a value in GU’s (gloss units).


The angle of reflectance required to measure gloss is dependent on the surface finish – highly reflective surfaces typically require a low angle of reflectance (20 degrees) – matt surfaces typically require high angles of reflectance (85 degrees).
