The Elcometer 480 offers single, dual and triple angle hand-held glossmeters that measure gloss, haze and percentage reflectance in a single unit.

The glossmeter’s gauge automatically calibrates and stores the calibration values and tile serial numbers into memory for complete BAM traceability standards.

According to the company, it is three times faster than other hand-held glossmeters when activated in Standard Mode, and ten times faster in Scan Mode, which provide real-time, accurate gloss values over the entire surface area.

The glossmeter stores as many as 40,000 readings in 2,000 numeric batches. The gauge can be connected via USB or Bluetooth to Android and iPhone mobile devices for instant data analysis and report generation.

Manually entered or automatically created test limits, when combined with the gauge’s Differential Mode, provides users with instant Pass/Fail and variation from approved values.

Test limits can be set up on one gauge and seamlessly transferred via Elcomaster PC software to another on the user’s production line or their suppliers, to ensure uniform quality inspection.

Each gauge is compatible with the ElcoMaster data management software, enabling gloss measurements to be combined with other key measurement parameters such as coating thickness, adhesion, climate and oven temperature profile data.
