Elcometer 456C – Digital Dry Film Thickness Gauge

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.
