The Rhopoint IQ FLEX Gloss meter with external measurement head has been established as the reference instrument for measuring reflective appearance of paint and coatings, particularly in the automotive and marine coatings sectors. By measuring a complete goniophotometric curve, the instrument combines the measurement of gloss, reflectance haze and orange peel (DOI/RIQ values) in a single measurement.

The Rhopoint IQ FLEX 60/20 brings appearance measurement to a higher level, specifically designed for difficult surfaces or small parts. The small footprint of the IQ FLEX 60/20 sensor makes for easier measurement of curved surfaces and difficult to reach areas when compared to a conventional gloss meter.

For improved performance and repeatability on even the smallest parts, the Rhopoint IQ FLEX 20 can be customized with magnetically attached adaptor plates. Using 3D printing technology, it is possible to create custom measuring jigs from the CAD diagrams of your components. These adapters can be easily interchanged for different applications:

  • 3 measurement spot sizes available in Flex 20 (6mm, 4mm & 2mm) for small parts and curved surfaces
  • Repeatable control of small parts and buttons
  • Non-contact plates for in-line applications
