Product Description

The Elcometer 480 Glossmeter allows you to actually measure the amount of gloss your paintwork is showing off! After you put in the hours to polish and protect your paint, often times the only real measure of gloss you receive is from your own eyes. If the paint looks fantastic, you almost always can tell, but what if there was a way to actually measure the amount of gloss? With the Elcometer 480 Glossmeter you will know exactly how much gloss you have instead of guessing! Using state of the art design and manufacturing techniques, the Elcometer 480 provides high-quality features, functionality and reliably for measuring & recording Gloss, % Reflectance & Haze on any material, including paint, plastic, ceramic or metal. What Elcometer calls, rapid LED technology, accurately measures up to 3 gloss angles at the same time at a rate of 10 readings per second. These gloss measurements are easily viewed on the large beautiful screen and can be instantly transferred from the meter to PC, iPhone, Android or other mobile devices via USB or Bluetooth. Take a look at the various technical specifications directly from Elcometer below. Stop guessing at the amount of gloss on your vehicle, measure it with the Elcometer 480 Glossmeter!
