One of the most critical specifications in the coatings industry is Dry Film Thickness. Dry Film Thickness measurement provides important information relative to the expected life of the substrate material being protected by the coating along with how it conforms to International Standards and its aesthetic appearance.
The Elcometer 456C range of Digital Dry Film Thickness Gauges are widely used where accuracy is critical for the measurement of most types of protective coatings on both magnetic metal (Ferrous) substrates and non-magnetic metal (Non – Ferrous) substrates. With a large range of Probes and other accessories, Coating thickness ranges from 0 up to 31mm can be measured.
There are a large range of gauges available to suit almost any application from basic entry level to full featured data logging gauges.
The Elcometer 500 Coating Thickness Gauge, non-destructively measures the thickness of coatings on concrete and other similar substrates.
These include: Drywall / Plasterboard, cinder block, concrete block, brick, and other cementitious substrates
Using state of the art ultrasonic technology, the Elcometer 500 can accurately, repeatably, reliably and non-destructively measure coatings, from 150µm up to 10mm (6 to 390mils) thick.
The Elcometer 500 is available in two models:
Model T: All the features of the Model B plus:
