Colour and glossiness are what characterize the appearance of an object. Two samples of the same colour but with different glosses do not visually look the same: the glossy surface is perceived as darker and more saturated. Both of these effects must be well controlled in order to achieve a consistent appearance. In comparison with the colour meters from other suppliers, the SPEKTROMASTER measures colour and gloss at the same time! The reason for any deviation can be clearly determined in any situation.
