The Novo-Curve Glossmeter is a unique instrument with specially designed optics for accurately measuring curved surfaces and small areas.
It can also be used to measure flat surfaces and areas which are too small to measure with standard glossmeters.
With built in statistical analysis and the ability to download results to a PC, the instrument has all the features you will ever need for fast accurate curved surface gloss measurement.
Simple checking of curved surfaces
For curved surfaces, the correct gloss value is the peak value identified on the sample. Continuous read mode on the Novo-Curve greatly simplifies this process.
Certainty of measurement
For improved gloss control, calibrate on a standard that matches closest to your sample. Additional standards are available from matt to mirror finish.
Repeatable sample positioning
Bespoke sample securing systems allow multiple samples to be measured in exactly the same place.
Hands free sample measurement
The included footswitch enables the user to easily manipulate the sample for measurement.
Detailed analysis of results
USB data transfer of results to Novo-Soft for further analysis and export to CSV.
Statistical analysis of results
On-board statistical analysis of batch readings (Max, Min, Mean, SD and CV).
