****** Page 6 ****** 3.5 SETTING THE PASS/FAIL PARAMETERS (CONTINUED) When enabled, any measurement which falls between the min and max values will be considered a c pass and the header text will be coloured green. Readings outside the min and max values will be deemed a fail and the header text will be coloured red. 4 CALIBRATING THE GAUGE The gauge has an automatic calibration option which detects when the Elcometer 407L calibration tile is in position. This is switched ON by default but can be disabled via Menu/Setup/CaIibration Menu. The gauge is supplied with filter paper protecting the calibration tile. This must be removed before calibrating. 4.1 1 2 3 4.2 1 2 b CALIBRATING WHEN AUTOMATIC CALIBRATION IS ENABLED Place the gauge on the calibration tile and press the navigation button. The following message will be displayed: “Tile Detected – Assigned Values; 200 xx.x; 600 – xx.x; 850 – xxx b. Note: The calibration values of the tile supplied with the Elcometer 407L are pre-programmed into the gauge. If using a different tile, follow the procedure outlined in Section 43. Press the or navigation button to highlight “CALIBRATE” followed to select Press the* or navigation button to highlight “CONFIRM” followed to select and save the calibration CALIBRATING WHEN AUTOMATIC CALIBRATION IS DISABLED Place the gauge on the calibration tile and select Menu/Calibrate Instrument Press the•Éo or navigation button to highlight “CONFIRM” followed byoio to select and save the calibration Note: The calibration values of the tile supplied with the Elcometer 407L are pre-programmed into the gauge. If using a different tile, follow the procedure outlined in Section 4.3. Dual Angle gauges will display 200- xx.x; 600- xx.x. Triple Angle gauge only. elcometer.com 5

This feature can be enabled via Menu/Setup/Measurement Menu/Auto Measure. Pressing the’ navigation button will access the gloss statistics screen, displaying statistics for the current batch. Readings can also be taken in this screen and the statistics will be updated accordingly. Pressing the* navigation button in the gloss statistics screen will access the gloss graph; this gives a graphical representation of the gloss measurements. Note: Graphs (dependent upon the gloss angle available) will only be displayed when two or more measurements have been taken. 6 Gloss Statistics >GRRPH 200 600 89.4 93.5 max 91.0 max 979 Min 86.9 Min 90.2 Mean 89.8 mean 94.9 1.1 SD 1.8 Gloss Graph Batches.

Surfaces with high reflectance are determined as glossy; less reflective surfaces are semi-gloss or matt. The Glossmeter will quantify this effect by measuring light reflection from a sample at defined angles. The measurement angles most commonly used for gloss are 200, 600 and 850. The most appropriate angle should be selected dependent on the glossiness of the sample surface. Using the correct measurement geometry increases resolution and improves the correlation of results with human perception of quality. To determine the correct measurement angle the surface should be assessed with the 600 geometry: Matt surfaces which measure below 10 GU at 600 should be re-measured with the 850 angle High gloss surfaces which measure above 70 GU at 600 should be assessed using the 200 angle. The 60 degree angle is best employed on mid gloss samples measuring between 10 and 70 GU. 12 elcometer.com
