Enhanced handheld gauges for nondestructive coating thickness measurement on virtually all metals

Gauge types:


For measuring non-ferromagnetic metal coatings, e.g., chrome, copper, zinc, as well as paint, varnish, enamel or plastic coatings on steel and iron. (Measurement with the magnetic-inductive method according to ISO 2178, ASTM D7091)


For measuring paint, varnish or plastic coatings on non-ferromagnetic metal substrate materials, of anodic coatings on aluminum and of electrically conducting coatings on non-conducting carrier materials. (Measurement with the eddy-current method according to ISO 2360, ASTM D7091)


Based on the automatic substrate material recognition and the combination of the two measurement methods (magnetic-inductive and eddy-current according to ISO 2178, ASTM D7091 and ISO 2360), this universal instrument can be used to measure numerous coatings both on iron/steel and on non-ferromagnetic metals and non-conducting carrier materials.
