The Rhopoint IQ represents the perfect upgrade to classic Gloss-Meters

IQ GLOSS measurements are fully compatible with existing Novo-Gloss and Micro-Tri-gloss results.

Dualgloss 20/60° or Trigloss 20/60/85° versions for maximum accuracy and resolution in all applications that require gloss measurement.

The Rhopoint IQ measures image quality and profiles how light is reflected from a surface. Standard glossmeters only measure how much light is reflected and are not sensitive to effects which dramatically reduce appearance quality.
