Novo-Curve Gloss Meter

Conforms to ASTM D 523 and Verified to ISO 2813

Novo-Curve Gloss Meters

Shown with standard

The Novo-Curve™ is a unique instrument with custom designed optics for accurately measuring the gloss of curved surfaces and small areas. It can also be used to measure flat surfaces and areas which are too small to measure with standard glossmeters.


  • Simple checking of curved surfaces, the correct gloss value is the peak value identified on the sample. Continuous read mode on the Novo-Curve™ greatly simplifies this process.
  • Hands free sample measurement. The included footswitch enables the user to easily manipulate the sample for measurement.
  • Repeatable sample positioning. Bespoke sample securing systems allow multiple samples to be measured in exactly the same place.
  • Statistical analysis of results. On-board statistical analysis of batch readings (max, min, mean, SD and CV)
  • Detailed analysis of results. USB datga transfer of results to Novo-Soft™ for further analysis and export to CSV.
  • Certainty of measurement. For improved gloss control, calibrate on a standard that matches closest to your sample.
  • Additional standards are available from matt to mirror finish with UKAS/ISO 17025 certification.
  • Great for applications like:
    • Plastic Parts - small items such as mobile phone buttons to large extruded pipes
    • Automotive - switches and buttons, chromed exhausts, curved body and interior parts
    • Furniture - wood, plastic and metal
    • Ceramics - porcelain, tiles and glazed crockery
    • Electroplating - chromed pipes, jewellery, handles, surgical instruments and prosthetics
    • Coins - polished metals
    • Banknotes - holograms and watermarks
    • Dental Research - tooth samples and prosthetics
    • All Paints and Coatings
