L&W Gloss Tester

Are you looking for support or purchase information?

L&W Gloss Tester measures gloss, which is an important property in the production of paper of high print quality. A paper with high gloss gives good print quality and contrast, but too high paper gloss can reduce readability because of reflection. To achieve a good compromise the paper’s gloss must be optimized.
