Astm d523

Because the specimen and standard are generally quite similar optically, measured gloss values are little affected by polarization. The gloss is the result of the moulding process and can be inherent to the material. For specimens with brush marks or similar texture effects, place them in such a way that the directions of the marks are parallel to the plane of the axes of the incident and reected beams.

Gloss can also be affected by environmental factors such as weathering or surface abrasion. Send us a request Wilton UK: Your comments will receive careful consideration at a meeting of the responsible technical committee, which you may attend.

Measurements by this test method correlate with visual observations of surface shininess made at roughly the corresponding angles.

ASTM D523 – Specular Gloss

A study of the history of gloss methods in ASTM and other societies, describing the background in the choice of geometry of these methods.

Ast Testing Inspection Certification. The specular gloss measurement is performed for the light reflected from the material surface. Enabling you to identify and mitigate the intrinsic risk in your operations, supply chains and business processes. For example, glass of index 1.

In obtaining the visual gloss ratings, however, it is customary to compare the specular refractive indices. For means of three determinations. To apply the correction, 3 Sold to: Contains photographs depicting d5233 characteristics of a variety d23 methods. Copyright ASTM Standard Test Method for Specular Gloss1 This standard is issued under the xed designation D ; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of last revision.

The ASTM D test method explains the measurement of gloss on non-metallic samples for geometries of 20, 60 and 85 degrees. Test Method D provides an alternative procedure for measuring reflection haze.

The Gloss Meter Tri-angle is used to perform the gloss measurement of various types of materials such as paint, paper, ceramics, plastics, and metals. The data are analyzed by multidimensional scaling.

For specimens with brush marks or similar texture effects, place them in such a way that the directions of the marks are parallel to the plane of the axes of the incident and reected beams. Keep them clean and away from any dirt that might scratch or mar their surfaces.

The magnitude of the polarization error depends on the difference between the refractive indices of specimen and standard, the angle of incidence, and the degree of polarization. Touchstone Research Laboratory, Ltd.

Since specular reection is, in general, spectrally nonselective, spectral corrections need to be applied only to highly chromatic, low-gloss specimens upon agreement of users of this test method. Test Method E includes techniques for the measurement of both distinctness-of-image d52 and reflection haze. To measure the correction, illuminate the specimen perpendicularly and view at the incident angle with the receiver aperture specied in 6.

The geometric conditions of test later incorporated in Test Method D are recommended. Through our network of over 43, people in 1, laboratories and offices in countries, Intertek provides quality and safety solutions to a wide range of industries around the world.

History of Test Method D Since specular reectance depends also on the surface refractive index of the specimen, the measured gloss ratings change as the surface refractive index changes. Clean the standards in warm water and a mild detergent solution brushing gently with a soft nylon brush.

The original values can be restored by optical polishing with cerium oxide. Since specular reflectance depends also on the surface refractive index of the specimen, the measured gloss ratings change as the surface refractive index changes.

However, in many applications the gloss scales of this test method have provided discriminations between coated specimens that have agreed well with visual discriminations of gloss The proper angle, calibration, and inspection according to standard supplied with the gloss meter are important before placing the measuring device on the test sample to take qstm reading.

The polished black glass high-gloss standard may be dabbed gently with a lint-free paper towel or other lint-free absorbent material. Gloss is associated with the capacity of a surface to reflect more light in some directions than in others.
