Question: Hello, I am writing from Monterrey, Mexico.


Hello, I am writing from Monterrey, Mexico. We have a paint system in our facility and I am in charge of the product specifications for each type of powder. I just want to know the difference between gloss and reflectance. I hope you can help me. G. B.


Buenos Dias! Que Pasa? Well that’s about all the Spanish I know.
Gloss is defined as a value of light reflectance. As such there is no difference in these terms as they relate to powder coating values.
