Coating Thickness Gauges

Coating thickness gauges assess the thickness of single-layer coatings, applied paint, or powder coatings. The test is often used on metal substrates but can be performed on non-metal substrates as well. These devices are commonly used in the production of semiconductors and photovoltaic cells.

They are many kinds of coating thickness gauges. Paint and powder gauges are used in the rapid inspection of paint, lacquer and similar coatings on metal. An electroplating gauge is used in the electroplating and galvanizing industries to get precise and repeatable coating thickness measurements. Some benchtop systems can be used for a range of applications to provide quick, easy and accurate measurements on a range of substrates.
