Specular gloss is the perception by an observer of the mirror-like appearance of a surface. The measurement of specular gloss consists of comparing the luminous flux reflected from an object to that reflected from a gloss reference standard. The accuracy of specular gloss measurements depends not only on the characteristics of the instrument but also on the properties of the gloss reference standard. Experiments have been performed to analyze the possible sources of error such as gloss reference standard variation, photodetector linearity and measurement repeatability, which are three most important components of uncertainty. The results indicate that the instrument should be carefully examined before the specular gloss measurement in order to acquire a satisfied result.
