The Rhopoint IQ measures not only gloss but also other image quality parameters such as: DOI, Haze and RSPEC , it is the only hand held instrument that profiles how light is reflected from a surface.

Standard glossmeters only measure how much light is reflected and are not sensitive to effects wich dramatically reduce appearance quality such as ; orange peel, haze effects and polishing marks which distort reflections in a surface, seriously reducing visual appearance but cannot be measured with traditional glossmeter.

  • DOI / RIQ Meter, ( quantifies orange peel )
  • Hazemeter ( reflectance haze )
  • Measures RSPEC
  • 20 glossmeter for high gloss finishes

In a single fast measurement the Rhopoint IQ captures information about the gloss and texture on a sample surface.
Combined gloss, haze and orange peel (DOI/RIQ values) information has made the IQ essential for controlling appearance finish in the paints and coatings sector, particularly for high tech., automotive and aerospace coatings.

The Rhopoint IQ quantifies surface quality problems that are invisible to a standard glossmeter

The Rhopoint IQ goes beyond gloss measurement by differentiating between two samples with EQUAL GLOSS VALUES. This is achieved by measuring the image quality ( is it like a mirror ?), it is the only hand held instrument that profiles how light is reflected from a surface, thus presenting you with the easily understood information to show you the better sample being measured.

Standard glossmeters only measure how much light is reflected and are not sensitive to effects which dramatically reduce appearance quality. The Rhopoint IQ DOI "Distinctness of Image" Quality Meter easily accomplishes the measurement of appearance. Information is displayed with one value, not multiple confusing values, but immediately and easily seen.

The Rhopoint IQ Measures

  • 20° Gloss
  • Haze
  • Distinctness of Image - DOI
  • RIQ
  • RSPEC

What is DOI ?


DOI, Distinctness of Image, is a measurement indicating the QUALITY OF THE GLOSS. How clearly can a reflected image appear.

Symptoms of poor DOI: Orange peel, brush marks, waviness or other structures visible on the surface. Poor finishing. Reflected images are distorted.

Causes: Application problems, incorrect coating flow, coating viscosity too high/low, sag or flow of coating before curing, incorrect particle size/distribution, overspray, improper flash/recoat time, inter coat compatibility, incorrect cure times and cure temperature.

What is RSPEC ?


RSPEC is the peak gloss value over a very narrow angle.
RSPEC is very sensitive to small changes in texture and is used to identify subtle differences in surface smoothness.


What is RIQ ?


RIQ is a superior measurement to DOI with expanded capabilities.RIQ quantifies ORANGE PEEL qualitatively as well as measuring surface waviness. RIQ is a HIGH RESOLUTION DOI measurement and correlates better with human vision and perception.

Orange Peel, brush marks, waviness, cause reflected images to be distorted.


Problems that can be detected using the Rhopoint IQ include:

  • Incorrect Coating Flow
  • Coating Viscosity
  • Sag or Coating Flow before Curing
  • Particle Size Distribution
  • Paint Overspray
  • Improper Flash, Recoat Time
  • Inter Coat Compatability
  • Incorrect Cure Time
  • Cure Temperature

Reflectance Haze with the Rhopoint IQ


Reflectance Haze is an optical effect caused by microscopic texture or residue on a surface. A milky finish is apparent on the surface causing a loss of reflected contrast, halos and patterns can be seen around reflections of high intensity light sources..

Causes: Poor dispersion, raw material incompatibility, additive migration, vehicle quality, stoving/drying/curing conditions, polishing marks, fine scratches, ageing, oxidisation, poor cleanliness/surface residue.

Gloss


A measurement proportional to the amount of light reflected from a surface.

Geometry: For best results the correct measurement geometry should be chosen based on the reflectance of the material. 20° is the ideal angle to measure high gloss surfaces such as automotive finishes'

 

Goniphotometric Profiles

Printed Material

The instrument displays surface reflectance profiles 17-23°. The shape of the curve describes how the light has interacted with the surface. Sharp curves close to the specular direction indicate smooth highly reflective surfaces.
