The Rhopoint IQ-S is the ultimate glossmeter upgrade

The Rhopoint IQ-S was specially designed and built to match automotive interior gloss measurement standards. IQ-S gloss measurements are fully compatible with existing Micro-TRI-gloss-S results.

All IQ-S are close tolerance selected for maximum accuracy and comparability in all gloss applications.

The Rhopoint IQ-S not only measures gloss but also 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.
