A correct paint- or coating thickness is an important parameter in the surface treatment industry. The performance of a coating system is based upon correct application of this system following the paint manufacturers specification sheet. Each layer from primer to topcoat and individual intermediate layers are exactly specified with a minimum and maximum coating thickness. Often both a dry and wet film thickness is specified.

Too low dry film thickness can lead to: Too high film thickness causes problems like:
  • Insufficient corrosion protection
  • Hiding power problems
  • Erosion
  • Grinning
  • Holidays
  • Rust Spotting
  • Undercutting
  • Extra material costs
  • Sagging (Sags), Runs
  • Alligatoring
  • Cracking
  • Mud Cracking
  • Tackiness

    A correct paint- or coating thickness is an important parameter in the surface treatment industry. The performance of a coating system is based upon correct application of this system following the paint manufacturers specification sheet. Each layer from primer to topcoat and individual intermediate layers are exactly specified with a minimum and maximum coating thickness. Often both a dry and wet film thickness is specified.

    Too low dry film thickness can lead to:

    • Insufficient corrosion protection
    • Hiding power problems
    • Erosion
    • Grinning
    • Holidays
    • Rust Spotting
    • Undercutting

    Too high film thickness causes problems like:

    • Extra material costs
    • Sagging (Sags), Runs
    • Alligatoring
    • Cracking
    • Mud Cracking
    • Tackiness
  • Coating thickness - Wet Film

    Wet Film Thickness Gauges are designed to quickly and easily measure the thickness of coatings immediately after they have been applied to a substrate.

  • Coating thickness - Powder

    An air-ultrasonic device can be used non-destructively / non-contact on uncured powder coatings on smooth metal surfaces to predict the thickness of the cured film before the powder coating is cured in the oven.

  • PIG or Destructive measuring

    PIG or Destructive measuring
    This method is often used on reference panels or in forensic inspections with failing coating systems. With this system a precise incision is made with a special cutting tool perpendicular to the surface. An illuminated measuring microscope is used to measure the width of the cut. Depending on the type of cutting tool the width is multiplied with a factor which leads to the coating thickness. This system is ideal for those circumstances where electronic gauges cannot be used. The thickness of individual layers can be determined as well with this system.

    Ultrasound or Ultrasonic
    The ultrasonic pulse-echo technique is used to measure the thickness of coatings on nonmetal substrates (plastic, wood, concrete etc.) without damaging the coating. The probe of the instrument contains an ultrasonic transducer that sends a pulse through the coating. The pulse reflects back from the substrate to the transducer and is converted into a high frequency electrical signal. The echo waveform is digitized and analyzed to determine coating thickness. In some circumstances, individual layers in a multi-layer system can be measured.

  • Simple, easy to use, small and portable gauges CM-8825 and CM-8826 for measurement of coatings on all metal surfaces. Instruments CM-8825 and CM-8826 are suitable for measurements on either Ferrous substrates (F), Non-Ferrous (NF), or on both Ferrous and Non-Ferrous substrates (FNF). In selecting the most appropriate gauge for your application, you need...

  • PowderTAG measures powder coating thickness before and after cure, non-contact and non-destructive.A sophisticated combination of specific powder-, infrared- and photo-thermal techniques measures the thickness of powder coatings in pre-cured and cured status, precise and reproducible.

  • Ultrasonic thickness gauge specifically designed to measure the thickness of metallic and non-metallic materials e.g. aluminium, titanium, plastics, ceramics, glass and plastics.
