Thickness Gages / Gauges

A coating thickness gauge, also known as a paint meter, is used to measure the thickness of dry films. This measurement plays a critical role in coatings industries due to the impact on how professionals are able to determine the processing techniques, quality, cost, as well as the evaluation of a coating’s expected life, appearance, and performance when applied to a product. Both destructive and non-destructive thickness measurement techniques are available. Destructive methods will physically cut the substrate with a cutter, and non-destructive methods instead employ an electromagnetic or eddy-current technique, to determine a coating sample’s thickness.
