Product Spotlight: Phase II PTG-4000 Coating Thickness Gauge

coating thickness gauge

In this post, you will find out more about an excellent coating thickness gauge that can make this task easier. Introducing the Phase II PTG-4000 Coating Thickness Gauge. Coating thickness gauges or paint meters are typically utilized to measure a product’s dry film thickness. Also known as DFT, it is one of the most measurements in the coatings sector. This type of information significantly impacts the chosen coating process, cost, overall and quality. In addition, DFT measurements can help determine the overall service lifespan of a coating, the product’s performance / appearance, and ensure compliance with International Standards.

DFT can be measured via two methods: non-destructive and destructive. The former involves using a cutter to cut a coating to the substrate. The latter involves using magnetic induction techniques that do not damage the coating and substrate. In addition, it is recommended when taking measurements on magnetic and non-magnetic metal surfaces such as aluminum and stainless steel. If you want to measure coating thickness on metallic substrates, consider using digital coating thickness gauges.
