PCE Instruments Announces Gloss Meter

JUPITER, FL | PCE Instruments (PCE) offers a gloss meter said to assess gloss variation on packaging quickly, easily, and accurately.

For example, if the gloss level of an ultraviolet varnish drops during the production of food product packaging, there could be curing problems. Poorly cured inks and coatings can rub, chip, and flake off of the packaging to contaminate the food within. By monitoring food packaging gloss levels during production, problems such as these can be detected early to avoid the cost of recoating or recalling.
