Gloss is an optical property which indicates how well a surface reflects light in a specular direction. It is one of the important parameters that are used to describe the visual appearance of an object.
Gloss is measured using a Gloss Meter which directs a light at a specific angle to the test surface and simultaneously measures the amount of reflection. The type of surface to be measured determines the gloss meter angle to be used and thus the gloss meter model.
Many industries measure gloss to ensure the quality of their products. It has been shown that the gloss level of a product has as much psychological impact on a consumer as its color. Many products are designed with combinations of high gloss and matte finishes, maximizing their customer appeal.
