Additional Product Info

With the most powerful built-in data processing capability, including difference calculations and pass-fail functions, they make Quality Control easier than ever with true compliance to all International Standards.

The menu-guided operation is simply controlled and activated by a jog-dial button. Data can be stored in the large capacity memory and output to ExcelTM for professional detailed reports using the included Easy-link software.

  • Tri-Glossmaster μ: 3 angles in one instrument with built-in thickness gauge
  • Tri-Glossmaster 20-60-85°: 3 angles in one instrument
  • Glossmaster single-angle: 20, 60, or 85°

  • Tri-Glossmaster 20-60-85°

    Gloss master

    Measure 3 angles simultaneously with one instrument - easy to calibrate - easy to use - making quality control easier than ever.

    With the versatility of three geometries the new Tri-Glossmaster allows any quality variations to be recognised quickly and effectively.

    Samples can be measured separately at each angle or at 2 or 3 angles simultaneously and effectively processed using the powerful built-in software.

    Slip and Friction Tester


    The Slip and Friction Tester is designed to measure the sliding resistance of sheet like materials including plastic film, packaging film laminates, paper, paperboard and coated surfaces.

    For over 30 years, Testing Machines, Inc. has had a history of producing reliable, accurate and robust testing instruments for measuring coefficient of friction. The model 32-07 is our latest design offering advanced features for measuring and automatically calculating static and kinetic coefficient of friction.

    Slip and friction testing aids in the evaluation of chemicals and additives used to create or minimize the degree of friction between two contacting test specimens.


    • Selectable speed from 5 to 50.8 cm per minute (2 to 20 in per minute)
    • Selectable travel distance from 2.5 to 30.5 cm (1 to 12 in.)
    • Load cell: 10 newtons (1 kg, 2.2 lbs)


    • Digital display, storage and editing of up to 100 readings, and selectable units (COF or grams)
    • Settable limits
    • Statistics-average, standard deviation, high/low results.
    • Report printout with built-in printer
    • RS-232
    • Static and kinetic coefficient of friction calculated in one operation.
    • Direct drive arm with unique skid control.
    • Sled-connecting mechanism ensures level pulling action.
    • Easily interchangeable sleds.
    • Full color, easy-to-read display

    Krebs Viscometer


    • Range: 54-140 KU (75-1000 g.)
    • Sturdy mechanical assembly & easy maintenance
    • Easy to read speed indication
    • Good value for money
    • Standard package: Viscometer, paddle rotor,
    • 1 pint (500 ml) / Ø85 mm can,
    • Set of 7 weights (2 x 5g, 1 x 10g, 1 x 25g, 1 x 50g, 2 x 100g,
    • 1 x 200g, 1 x 500g), AC/DC 12V adapter (for digital version)


    This traditional KREBS viscometry instrument uses a rotating paddle driven by falling weights to determine the paint viscosity. The viscosity value in Krebs units can be easily converted using the table supplied or by calculation by formula from the resultant value of total weight required to reach 200 rpm.

    The robust and simple construction of this viscometer allows it to be used in various environments.
    2 versions available: with tachometer or with stroboscope.

    Digital Rotothinner™


    • Quick release chuck for rapid rotor change and cleaning
    • Multipoint calibration
    • Remote calibration key for extra security
    • Storage facility and RS232 output for printer


    The Rotothinner instrument uses a disc or ball shaped rotor to determine the viscosity of the sample under test. The results are displayed on the LCD screen in POISE units.

    Rotothinners allow the operator to continuously monitor the samples viscosity whilst a solvent or thinner is added. This allows quick correction factors for use in the production batch when carried out quantitatively.

    The viscosity is measured using a high quality microprocessor controlled DC motor. The robust construction of the Rotothinners means that they are suitable for use as both production and laboratory instruments. Supplied with a 250ml sample tin.
