Gloss
Refers to the smooth, mirror-like reflection coming from a sample. It is also referred to as specular. This feature can be measured and evaluated. Gloss values are specific to the type of gloss meter used for the evaluation. The pigment formulation program has the ability to consider data from 3 gloss meters: 20°, 60° and 85°. To the right of the gloss range field is a second field that contains the gloss meter selections. Please be sure you that your gloss values are from the same gloss meter selected.
