RHOPOINT IQ GONIOPHOTOMETER 20°/60°/85°

The Ultimate Glossmeter Upgrade. 

Rhopoint IQ Goniophotometer 20°/60°/85° is an incredibly advance instrument design and built for  measurement:  20°/60°/85° GLOSS | REFLECTANCE HAZE | REFLECTED IMAGE QUALITY(RIQ) | DISTINCTNESS OF IMAGE(DOI) – ALSO KNOW AS ORANGE PEEL | RSPEC. 

Rhopoint IQ is designed and built 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 such as automotive. 

The Rhopoint IQ quantifies surface quality problems that are invisible to a standard glossmeter. The Rhopoint IQ 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.
