Which gloss meter angle should I use for my application?
ISO 2813 and ASTM D523 (the most commonly used standards) describe three measurement angles of gloss using a gloss meter.
Gloss is measured in gloss units (GU) and is traceable to reference standards held at NIST.

High Gloss: 20°
The acute measurement angle of 20° gives improved resolution for high gloss surfaces. Surfaces that measure 70GU and above at the standard angle of 60° are often measured with this geometry.
The 20° angle is more sensitive to haze effects that affect the appearance of a surface.

Universal Measurement Angle: 60°
All gloss levels can be measured using the standard measurement angle of 60°. This is used as the reference angle with the complimentary angles of 85° and 20° often used for low and high gloss levels respectively.

Low Gloss: 85°
For improved resolution of low gloss a grazing angle of 85° is used to measure the surface. This angle is recommended for surfaces which measure less than 10GU when measured at 60º.
This angle also has a larger measurement spot which will average out differences in the gloss of textured or slightly uneven surfaces.
