ElektroPhysik MiktroTest Coating Thickness Gauge Technical Specifications:

All coatings on steel e.g. paints, powder coating,enamels,chrome, zinc…measure at any angle. No power supply required.

  • electroplating
  • nickel coatings
  • phosphating
  • paint
  • plastic
  • enamel etc. on steel
  • Conforms to ASTM D7091

Measuring principle:
The measurement of the coating thickness is based on magnetic attraction. The attractive force is related to the distance between a permanent magnet and a steel substrate. This distance represents the thickness of the coating to be measured. The magnet is lifted from the surface by means of a spring connected to the magnet arm. The force needed to lift the magnet is directly related to the angle of rotation of the torsion spring. This measuring principle is also especially suited for electroplated nickel on copper, aluminium and other non-ferrous metals.
