Coating Thickness, Dry Film Thickness (DFT)
Measurements of Corrosion Protection Coatings
Climatic conditions can cause rapid corrosion of metallic components if they are not protected by appropriate measures. Such corrosion protection coatings can be realized in different ways with the protective function being dependent on the applied coating.
For the precise measurement of corrosion protection coatings, FISCHER provides a wide range of coating thickness gauges. They are also often referred to as dry film thickness (DFT) gauges.
- Measurement of the dry film thickness (DFT) of corrosion protection coatings according to the international standard SSPC-PA 2 using the compact coating thickness gauges
- Measurement of the thickness of corrosion protection coatings according to the international standard IMO PSPC using the MP0R and MP0R-FP instruments, even in harsh environments
- Measurement of the thickness of corrosion protection coatings in harsh surroundings (e.g., ships, bridges, machinery) using the instruments of the FMP series
- Measurement of the paint thickness in the automotive sector using the instruments of the FMP series
- The measurement of large objects (e.g., ships) generates a large number of measurement data; their evaluation is very complex. Using the software FISCHER DataCenter, you are able to generate reports from the measurement data automatically, immediately following the measurement procedure.
- Measurement of thin duplex coatings (paint/zinc on steel or iron) using the PHASCOPE® PMP10 DUPLEX
- Measurement of blasted surfaces using the Surface Profile Probe FPR1
- Coating thickness measurement on hot dip galvanized steel structures with Zn coatings of at least 70 µm and an additional paint coating using the DUALSCOPE® instruments of the FMP series. You can measure the Zn coating and the paint coating in one measurement step and display both coating thicknesses separately.
