Paint Film Measure

Coating thickness is an important variable that plays a role in product quality, process control, and cost control. Measurement of film thickness can be done with many different instruments. Understanding the equipment that is available for film thickness measurement and how to use it is useful to every coating operation.

The issues that determine what method is best for a given coating measurement include the type of coating, the substrate material, the thickness range of the coating, the size and shape of the part, and the cost of the equipment. Commonly used measuring techniques for cured organic films include nondestructive dry film methods such as magnetic, eddy current, ultrasonic, or micrometer measurement and also destructive dry film methods such as cross-sectioning or gravimetric (mass) measurement. Methods are also available for powder and liquid coatings to measure the film before it is cured.

Data logger gauges are now available to record batches of readings in accordance with either SSPC PA2 or the IMO 90/10 rule. Click up the Positector 6000. 

 Positector 200 Measures coating thickness over wood, concrete, plastics, composites and more. Advanced models measure up to 3 individual layer thicknesses in a multi-layer system and features a graphic readout for detailed analysis of the coating system. Proven non-destructive ultrasonic technique conforms to ASTM D6132 and ISO 2808 and SSPC PA9 .

Elcometer 211 (Intrinsically Safe Magnetic)

Elcometer 211 (Intrinsically Safe Magnetic)

For areas where intrinsic safety is paramount we recommend an Elcometer 211 magnetic pull off gauge to verifiy paint and coating thickness.


 
Elcometer 255F

Elcometer 255F

The Elcometer 255F is a portable microprocessor based coating thickness gauge for measuring any non-magnetic, non-conductive coating such as paint, varnish, rubber, glass, plastic, epoxy, bitumen, or any sprayed metal coating applied to a ferromagnetic base.

Ideal for the measurement of fairing compounds on steel hulls or verification of high film builds of passive fire protection systems.  

For film builds up to 25mm thick over ferrous substrates.
