NOVO-GLOSS IQ MEASURES IMAGE QUALITY

The Novo-Gloss I.Q. is the first hand held instrument to profile how light is reflected from a surface.
Traditional glossmeters measure quantitatively and are not sensitive to effects that reduce appearance quality.
The Novo-Gloss I.Q. uses reflectance profiles to calculate gloss, haze and DOI values allowing the user to fully evaluate surface finish.
 

Description

SIMPLE AND FAST OPERATION
With a single button press the instrument measures gloss, Rspec, DOI and Haze at either 20º or 60º


GLOSS
IQ gloss measurements are fully compatible with existing gloss standards including ISO 2813, ASTM D523.
I.Q. Measurement – Gloss Units (GU) at 60º and 20º


HAZE
Symptoms – High gloss surfaces look milky, flat and have poor reflected contrast.
Causes – Coating incompatibilities, additive migration, polishing or machining marks, weather damage and poor
drying/curing.
I.Q. Measurement – Haze or Log Haze units (HU or HU LOG ) to ASTM E430 standard.


DISTINCTNESS OF IMAGE (DOI)
Symptoms – High frequency textures, surface ripples and ‘orange peel’ distort the reflected image.
Causes – Application and flow issues, reticulation, substrate related problems and poor formulation.
I.Q.Measurement – DOI value (0-100) -a measurement of image forming qualities from ASTM D5767-A.

 

GONIOPHOTOMETRIC PROFILE
Results can be downloaded via USB for graphical and statistical analysis.
IQ Measurement-A detailed profile of reflected light distribution +/-6º from specular.


ANGLE AND POSITION COMPENSATION
The instrument includes automatic compensation for poor sample and measurement positioning. This makes the IQ
more accurate than conventional glossmeters when measuring curved and uneven surfaces


INDUSTRIES AND APPLICATIONS
The Novo-Gloss IQ is ideal in the metal finishing and automotive industries. It can also be used for any painted, powder coated or polished metal product where
a high quality homogeneous finish is required.
