Product Description The Rhopoint IQ GLOSS-HAZE-DOI-GONIOPHOTOMETER has been established as the reference instrument for measuring reflective appearance. In a single fast measurement it captures information about the gloss and texture on a sample surface. Combined gloss, haze and orange peel (DOI/RIQ values) information has made the IQ essential for controlling appearance finish in the paints and coatings sector. The Rhopoint IQ FLEX 20 brings this technology to a new format specifically designed for curved surfaces and small & delicate parts.

THE RHOPOINT IQ FLEX 20 MEASURES:
- 20° GLOSS
- RSPEC
- REFLECTANCE HAZE - An optical effect caused by microscopic texture or residue on a surface (milky finish, Halos and patterns etc)
- REFLECTANCE HAZE COMPENSATION - The instrument compensates for reflection from within the coating for highly reflective pigments, metallic coatings and specialty pigments, allowing the haze of any painted surface to be measured.
- REFLECTED IMAGE QUALITY - RIQ is used to quantify effects such as orange peel and surface waviness. Gives higher resolution results compared to Distinctness of Image (DOI) measurement and better mimics human perception of surface texture
- DISTINCTNESS OF IMAGE (DOI) - A measure of how clearly a reflected image will appear in a reflective surface.
- GONIOPHOTOMETRIC CURVES

- Measurement of curved surfaces - Conventional gloss instruments are best suited to large flat areas and test panels, as curved surfaces cause measurement errors. The small footprint of the IQ FLEX 20 makes it much more effective on curved surfaces than a conventional glossmeter; its compact size and shape also allows access to difficult to reach areas.
- Measurement of small surfaces - The IQ FLEX 20 can be customised with magnetically attached adaptor plates. These can be easily interchanged for different applications. **Reduced measurement spot sizes (4 & 2mm) for small parts**
- Bespoke measuring heads - Bespoke 3D printed adaptor jigs for repeatable control of curved surfaces (Convex surface, Concave surface, Complex curve)

THE RHOPOINT IQ FLEX 20 QUANTIFIES SURFACE QUALITY PROBLEMS THAT ARE INVISIBLE TO A STANDARD GLOSSMETER

It measures reflected image quality; it is the only hand held instrument that profiles how light is reflected from a surface. Glossmeters are usually used to measure the shininess of a surface but are not sensitive to common effects
which reduce appearance quality.
