Product Description The micro-gloss 75° is a specialized glossmeter for paper, paperboard and structured plastic e.g. vinyl siding.

Especially coated paper, but also a variety of uncoated papers, request gloss control. The 75° geometry is suitable for most ink films on paper and paperboard. Color differences have a negligible influence on measured gloss. For example, a white surface will measure less than one gloss unit higher than an otherwise identical black surface. Very high gloss papers (lacquered, highly varnished or waxed) should use a 20° measurement geometry. As defined in the TAPPI standard for batch QC at least ten test specimens free from folds or wrinkles or other imperfections are to be checked.

Another typical material to be tested for specular gloss using the 75° geometry is vinyl siding made principally from rigid PVC and is used to clad exterior walls of buildings.
