Coating Thickness Gauge Ferrous & Non Ferrous

Synonym : Paint film thickness gauge, Dry film thickness gauge, DFT Meter, Paint coating thickness gauge, Coating mil thickness gauge

Category: Coating Inspection, Dry Film Thickness

Caltech India offers Digital Coating Thickness Gauge CES-408 FN model for both ferrous (F) & non ferrous (NF) substrate materials. A coating thickness gauge is used to measure dry film thickness. It is also referred to as a paint meter and mil gage. Dry Film thickness measurements can be used to evaluate a coating’s expected life, the product’s appearance and performance, and ensure compliance as per International Standards.

Paint coating thickness gauge is a kind of portable measuring instrument that can take fast, intact, precise measurement of coating thickness. It can not only be used in engineering field, laboratories, but also meet the demand of multiple measuring by using two separate probes for ferrous and non-ferrous substrates. It is used widely in manufacturing, metal processing industry, powder coating, paint coating industry, chemical industry, commodity inspection field, etc. As an essential instrument in material protection industry.

CES-408 FN Coating thickness meter comes with ferrous (F) & non ferrous (NF) probes. Coating thickness gauge has dual technology features selection of magnetic induction or eddy current measurement techniques. Coating thickness gage utilize non-destructive principle with most economical choice that retains the uncompromising quality of coating inspection instruments.

Dry film thickness can be measured by non-destructive coating thickness measurement instruments that can be taken on either magnetic steel surfaces or non-magnetic metal surfaces such as stainless steel or aluminium using a digital coating thickness gauge.

Coating thickness gauge are ideal to measure coating thickness such as powder coating or paint coating on metallic substrates. Electromagnetic induction is used for non-magnetic coatings on ferrous substrates such as steel, whilst the eddy current principle is used for non-conductive coatings on non-ferrous metal substrates.

Dry film thickness is probably the most critical measurement in the coatings industry because of its impact on the coating process, quality and cost. We are leading coating thickness gauge manufacturers and supplier in india. To know coating thickness gauge price in India, contact us.
