RHOPOINT CONCRETE CLARITY METER

Handheld Instrument Designed To Quantify Surface Quality

Rhopoint Concrete Clarity Meter (CCM) is the only hand held instrument that profiles how light is reflected from a surface. The meter is built and designed to measures reflected image quality. Standard glossmeters are usually used to measure the “shininess” of a surface but are not sensitive to common effects which reduce appearance quality.

Standards Compliant

  • DIN EN ISO 2813 Determination of specular gloss of non-metallic paint films at 20 degrees, 60 degrees and 85 degrees
  • ASTM D523 Standard Test Method for Specular Gloss
  • ASTM D2457 Standard Test Method for Specular Gloss of Plastic Films and Solid Plastics
  • DIN 67530 Reflectometers a means for gloss assssment of plane surfaces of paint coatings and plastics
  • JIS Z 8741 Specular glossiness – Method of measurement
  • ISO 7668 Anodized aluminium and aluminium alloys – Measurement of specular reflectance and specular gloss at angles of 20 degrees, 45 degrees, 60 degrees or 85 degrees
  • ASTM E430 Standard Test Methods for Measurement of Gloss of High-Gloss Surfaces by Abridged Goniophotometry

GLOSS

A measurement proportional to the amount of light reflected from a surface

Geometry: The correct measurement geometry should be used according to the sample finish – mid gloss: 60°, high gloss: 20°.

20° Improved accuracy and resolution on high gloss & metallic samples (>70GU when measured at 60°) Measurement range: 0-2000 GU
   
60° Universal angle – all gloss levels
Measurement range: 0-1000 GU
   
Measurement range:0-100 GU100-2000GU
Resolution:0.1 GU 
Repeatability:±0.2 GU±0.2%
Reproducibility:±0.5GU±0.5%

DOI

Resolution 0.1 • Repeatability ±0.2 • Reproducibility ±0.5
Measurement range: 0-100

REFLECTANCE HAZE COMPENSATION

The instrument compensates for reflection from within the coating for highly reflective pigments, metallic coatings and speciality pigments, allowing the haze of any reflective surface to be measured.

REFLECTED IMAGE QUALITY (RIQ)

RIQ is used to quantify effects such as orange peel and surface waviness. This new parameter gives higher resolution results compared to Distinctness of Image (DOI) measurement and better mimics human perception of surface texture, especially on high quality finishes.

Resolution 0.1 • Repeatability ±0.2 • Reproducibility ±0.5
Measurement range: 0-100

RSPEC

The peak gloss measured over a very narrow angle. RSPEC
Usage: It is very sensitive to surface texture and can be used to identify subtle differences in smooth surfaces

Peak Specular Reflectance: 20° ±0.09905°

Measurement range: 0-2000 GU
