PaintChecker Model 591

PaintChecker mobile LED Blue 591 gauge a photothermal measuring device used for the non contact and non destructive determination of coating thicknesses in accordance with DIN EN 15042-2. (metallic substrates), coating thickness ranges: 20-150 µm – powder, 50-250 µm – powder thk, 20-200 µm cured

Specially developed for the measurement of powder coatings before curing on various substrates such as steel, aluminum and ceramics.
Cured coatings can also be measured. The precise layer thickness measurement is geometry independent and therefore also possible on complex parts such as corners, edges or curved inner sides.  The photothermal measuring method is an indirect measuring method which means that the measuring device does not measure coating thickness values directly, but that they are derived indirectly from the evaluation of the photothermal measurement signal.
The Sensor
The sensor made of extruded high-strength plastic is designed for manual handling and contains, in addition to eye-safe positioning LEDs (UV light), the measurement data recording.  The fabricated cable that connects the sensor and the controller unit is 0.8 m in length.
With the ergonomic, lightweight sensor, measurements can be made directly by hand. With its optomechanical structure, the sensor can also be used in the immediate vicinity of the application.
The Controller-Unit
The controller-unit is contained in a rugged aluminum housing. All of the settings can be selected and modified conveniently with the membrane keypad using a context-related menu that is easy to understand.  The USB connection is used for communicating with a PC. The software allows complete control over the measurement procedure and storage of measurement data.  The measuring values are saved in measuring series for immediate or later use.

Thickness Gauge PAINTXPLORER 548

Tabletop instrument for measuring the thickness of organic coatings on all substrate using the wedge cut principle. Standards ISO 2808, NF T 30-123, DIN 50986, ASTM D 4138.  The PAINTXPLORER 548 has been developed to extend the range of the application of the PAINT BORER 518 MC, especially targeting sensitive drillings, particularly into rigid/brittle materials. It is possible that, already at minor eccentric irregular running of the drill used or of its centre axle, such materials can be subject to breaking off of the cutting edges including chipping off, leading afterwards during the optical measurement with the microscope also to limitedly definable transitions between the layers to be measured

LAYERCHECK 750 Coating Thickness Gauge

Model 750 USB-F for all non-magnetic coatings on steel.  Model 750 USB-FN for all non-magnetic coatings on steel and all insulating coatings on non-ferrous metalsThe measuring principle conforms to the DIN, ISO, BS and ASTM norms and standardsThe small and robust thickness gauge LAYERCHECK 750 USB is used for quick and precise, non-destructive coating thickness measurements on metallic substrates. Typical fields  of application are e.g. industrial corrosion protection, assessor matters, electroplating and paint shops, the chemical, automobile, shipbuilding and aircraft industries as well as the apparatus and machine construction


For measuring coating thickness digitally.  The GalvanoTest is available in two versions;  Model 2000 is the basic version. In its default delivered configuration without accessories, it is suitable for measuring a large number of layer/layer or layer/base material combinations. This model is especially recommended for measuring multiple layers because it is easy to handle. The Model 3000 provides even more comfort during use. The measuring stand with built-in circulation pump and easily replaceable measuring cell enables the electrolyte to be automatically filled or emptied. It also helps conserve electrolyte, since the automatic circulation of the measuring cell filling can be used repeatedly for multiple detachment sequences. Another advantage of the Model 3000 is that very small detachment surfaces of up to 0.25 mm2 are possible.   Both versions- Coulometric coating thickness measurement, for electroplated layers, 0.05 μm – 75 μm

MINITEST 725-735-745

Non-destructive coating thickness measurement on steel (F) and non-ferrous metals (N), measuring sensors up to 15 mm (F) and 7 mm (N) The MiniTest is ergonomically designed and its rounded shape allows the MiniTest gauge to fit perfectly into the palm of your hand. Designed for utmost flexibility for quality control and inspections.

TNO Paint Borer 518MC & 518USB

Thickness measurement of all coatings on any substrate Measurement of individual layers of a multi-layer coating
Universal Thickness Measuring Instrument
  Thickness measurements in accordance with  the standardised  wedge cut method.  Combines the advantages of P.I.G. 455 with greater ease of operation: a conical bore of defined angle is made in the coating. Measuring microscope, easily and accurately focused over the cut out. Minimum specimen damage allows a large number of test points. Specimen holder for very small specimens (10 mm dia.) available.  DIN 50 986 ISO 2808 ASTM D 4138 ASTM D 5796

With the 518 USB version, connectable to a PC, laptop/WINDOWS-tablet, a convenient digitally supported way is given for visual recognition/ detection/measurement and documentation. An appropriate software is included

Foil Thickness Gauge 497

To measure the thickness of foils, card, paper, with and without coating. Indispensable for scrubbing resistance tests on Leneta foils and for colour and opacity measurements on contrast cards. Measuring range 1000 microns, accuracy 1 micron.

P.I.G. Paint Inspection Gauge 455

A successful instrument using the standardised wedge cut method. Indispensable for film thickness measurement on any substrate. In the case of multi layer coatings total and individual layer thickness can be measured. Measuring ranges 200/500/ 1000/2000 microns. Also for adhesion tests in accordance with AS 1580 (method 408.1).

Wet Film Thickness Gauge 433

One instrument only for 4 measuring ranges: 5 – 100 microns, 100 – 500 microns, 300 – 700 microns, 700 – 1500 microns. This comb-shaped instrument, made of stainless steel, stands out for high accuracy.

Wet Film Thickness Gauge 333

Inexpensive simply operating instrument. The stainless steel “comb” with tooth lengths varying by equal amounts is applied perpendicular to the wet film and the film thickness can be read off on the last tooth that made contact with the wet coating. 3 versions with measuring ranges 120/600/1200 microns. Also available is the Model 333-S: Large version acc. to BASF for road marking paint

Wet Film Thickness Gauge 234

A hardened and ground double wheel with an eccentric cam in the middle is rolled over a newly applied film. The wetting line on the middle cam is read off on a scale as wet film thickness. Total measuring range: 1500 microns, available in 8 different sub-ranges.
