Test Coating Thickness on Non-Metallic Substrate

Test Coating Thickness on Non-Metallic Substrate

It’s been said that the first impression you make is the last impression. This also applies to the Non-metallic products market. Here the first impression would be the appearance of than plastic or rubber product or to be very specific the outermost layer of the product. It’s judged by a variety of criteria including style, finish and perceived durability. By using a good Coating thickness gauge non-ferrous ensures reliability, product quality, and profit margins for manufacturers, distributors and packaging companies. However, getting the right coating thickness measuring tool and then using it efficiently is a challenge

There was a day when the minimum thickness of a coating sufficed strictly for the purposes of corrosion prevention. That’s not so today—the science of coating a product has become far more advanced and complex. There’s a lot more engineering going on with regard coatings. The days of simply applying a common primer and topcoat and calling it a day are gone. In today’s world, the coating engineering has changed a lot and so the need for thickness evolution. The coating thickness measurement should be a routine process for all coaters. As the measurement of the right thickness of the protective layer is a must for its physical and internal strength. The use of a correct gauge depends on the thickness range of the coating, the cost of the gauge, the type and shape of the substrate, and how crucial it is to achieve an accurate measurement.

The thickness of a coating is such an important factor that it cannot be overlooked. It affects the overall performance of the engineered coating that not only helps make that good first impression but the overall evaluation of the product throughout its lifecycle. This all plays heavy on a company’s reputation and decisions on future purchases.

Coating thickness gauge non-ferrous is used for non-ferrous materials having non-conductive coating (paint, enamel, rubber plastic etc.) or for non-magnetic metal (aluminium, copper, zinc, tin, etc.) Calibration facility is provided with the instrument as an inbuilt feature. The test results can be recorded in real-time with LCD display equipped with the device. It is one of the most popular methods for coating thickness evaluation.

The gauge comes with flexible lead measuring probes along with a set of 5 calibration foils and zero disks. It is fit for single and multiple point calibration and provides an accuracy of ±2.5 mm. The thickness ranges from 0 to 1250 mm.

It is highly a portable device with you as it comes with an industrial carrying case
