Sheen Spectromatch Gloss Colorimeter

Model: 281 – 282

Brand: Sheen Instruments – UK


This new portable spectrophotometer combines the latest and most advanced technology in micro-electronics and colorimetry.
While providing high precision measurement based on 10nm spectral resolution in agreement with many other high-end spectrophometers, it offers excellent performance in many applications, from laboratory analysis to on-site quality control.

Colour + Gloss Measurement in One Unit
For many products, the colour effect can be influenced by the variation of gloss.
Spectromatch Gloss measures both attributes using the built-in 60° glossmeter, and displays colour and gloss data simultaneously. This unique feature helps to efficiently identify the potential causes of mismatch.
Long Term Stability 

Spectromatch Gloss is available either in sphere d/8° or 45/0° geometries, equipped with an exclusive illumination system. This advanced technology provides highly reliable temperature independent measurement and long term stability, with 3-month calibration interval.

Excellent Repeatability on Textured Surfaces

  • The d/8° version specially offers a patented technique to eliminate influences caused by measuring direction: an exclusive built-in white hemisphere enhances light distribution
    and ensures optimum circumferential illumination, thus providing an excellent repeatability, particularly for measurements of textured surfaces
  • Available geometries: 45/0° or d/8° SPIN, Ø11mm (0.43˝) aperture
  • Buit-in 60° glossmeter, 5 x 10mm (0.2˝ x 0.4˝) aperture for both versions
  • Output to PC (Easy-link software included)
  • Guarantee: 10 years on light source, 2 years on the instrument



  • Spectral range: 400-700 nm, 10nm interval
  • Precision/Repeatability: 0.01 ΔE*, 1σ (10 measurements on white tile)
  • Inter-instruments agreement: 0.2 ΔE*,1σ (on 12 BCRA tiles)
  • Colorimetric systems: CIELab/Ch, Lab(h), XYZ, Yxy
  • Differences: ΔE*, ΔE(h), ΔECMC, ΔEFMC2, ΔE94, ΔE99, ΔE2000, and ΔL*a*b*, ΔL*C*h* and Δ of other components
