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.
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
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.
The difference in level between substrate and film surface is gauged by the contact point of the dial indicator. Measuring range 0 – 1000 microns in 5 micron divisions.
For testing the degree of through drying of a coating. A test plunger faced with nylon fabric and loaded with a defined weight is lowered onto the test surface for a period of 10 s, and then turned through 90º. The resulting effect on the coating is evaluated after lifting the test plunger
24 test card versions available, in different sizes, patterns and colourings, including special penetration cards for watery systems. Test charts to determine the hiding power and contrast ratio of pigmented systems in organic solvents.
A robust instrument for gauging the degree of fineness-of-grind of liquid dispersions of pigments in the range 0 -15/25/50/100 microns. The substance is filled into the wedge-shaped grooves and drawn down with a blade. Rippling occurs at the point where pigments particles are bigger than the depth of the groove measured in microns.
To measure the density of coating materials and similar liquids. Robust and light weight design, made of black anodized aluminium or stainless steel. Available for 50 or 100 ml capacity. Can also be provided with certification from the official Bureau of Weights & Measures (EICHAMT) .
Flow Time Measuring Instrument CUPTIMER 243 USB with USB interface for data storing. Opto-electronic Measuring Instrument for exact Determination of the Flow Time by using Standardized Flow Cups, for Viscosity Measurements. Adaptable for use with DIN, ASTM and ISO flow cups (also suitable for AFNOR cups).
A series of viscosity measuring cups made of aluminum or phenol resin, available in various sizes and conforming to international standards. Optional accessories: Adjustable tripod and thermostatically controlled jacket to ensure reproducible results; thermometer and digital stop watch with calibration certificate.
