Why Have Your Gloss Meter Calibrated?
So you’re thinking I calibrate my gloss meter every time I use it, so why pay for it to be calibrated again? When you perform the user calibration you’re only checking and adjusting it at one point of its measuring range, also how do you know that your gloss tile is still as glossy as it was?
When AML calibrate your gloss meter we perform the following.
- Clean optics and tile
- Calibrate at 4 points across the range of the gloss meter
- Check condition of optics and tile
- Evaluate the value of the instruments own tile and re-enter this in the instrument for the user calibrations.
