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

LayerScan 590 Coating Thickness Gauge

The LayerScan 590 measures thicknesses from 1 μm to 1 mm by non-contact and nondestructive method, immediately after the application. Regardless of the color of the coating or of the shape and material of the substrate, the device will provide accurate test results. It works on the principle of the thermal coating resistance.

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


The coulometric or anodic de-plating technique is used for measuring the thickness of electroplated coatings on virtually all substrates such as steel, non-ferrous metals or insulating material bases. Typical applications include: nickel on steel, zinc on steel, tin on copper, silver on copper or copper on epoxy This technique simply involves the removal of a small, almost invisible area of coating material. The substrate is not affected. The coulometric method ensures reliable and exact results. Designed for complete ease of use, GalvanoTest requires no specific operator skills and only minimal training before actual measurements can take place. The coulometric principle is the only low-cost method to measure the individual layers of multi-layer systems, for instance chrome plus nickel plus copper on steel one after the other.  Connected to the MiniPrint data printer, GalvanoTest provides complete documentation of measuring results and statistics. For specific measuring analysis or later reference, the characteristic voltage curve during the de-plating process can also be printed out.

MINITEST 720-730-740

The MiniTest 700 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, the sensor of the MiniTest 740 model can be easily converted from a built-in sensor into an external one. So even difficult to access areas can be reached without problems. The MiniTest 700 line is designed to meet all of your coating thickness testing requirements: Choose the MiniTest 720 if you prefer one hand operation with a built-in sensor. The model MiniTest 730 comes with an external sensor. All models are equipped with a large, easy-to-read and backlit display. To ensure maximum user flexibility, the display orientation can rotate by 180°, so readings will never be upside down


For non-magnetic coatings on steel using the non-destructive magnetic pull-off technique. No electrical current required. Measuring result held mechanically. With unique automatic measuring system for reproducible results, even under extreme measuring conditions. 11 versions for a total measuring range 1 micron – 20 mm, also for electro-plated nickel layers on various base materials.


Inexpensive instrument using the magnetic pull-off method for rapid non-destructive measurement of non-magnetic layers on steel. Measuring result held mechanically. No electrical supply required. Measuring range: 25 – 700 microns.

TNO Paint Borer 518MC

For film thickness measurements using the wedge cut technique. 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.

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.
