Developed together with TQC Sheen, the Universal Surface Appearance Meter (or USAM for short) is a measurement device designed to analyze and test paints, inks, powder coatings or specialty coatings in an objective manner.

The USAM is the latest generation in appearance gauges and allows for multi angle inspection of surfaces. Giving the user a more dynamic insight in the reflective / appearance properties of a surface, USAM is designed with the idea of creating the most transparent split in reflection, haze and DOI properties analysis for the coating industry. It's unique take on these analyses will allow the system to operate on both high gloss and matt surfaces.
