Applications

Metal finishers need to ensure that electroplated and galvanized coatings over ferrous substrates are measured to a precise thickness to prevent defects in finished goods. 

Our thickness gauges provide reliable, simple and accurate measurements for process and quality control in your electroplating and galvanizing operations for the purpose of wear resistance and corrosion protection in metal components.

Choose from a range of digital coating thickness gauges that provide increasing functionality from the entry level models, to the top of the range benchtop thickness analyzers.

Common measurement applications for these gauges include:

  • Components for automotive/aerospace
  • Appliances
  • General industrial parts
  • Architectural pieces

Paint and powder coatings are more than just a decorative finish; they provide critical surface protection against wear and corrosion.  Whether you are a manufacturer, body shop or a hobbyist our paint thickness gauges accurately and easily ensure consistent coating thickness and help to identify imperfections which could impact reliability and longevity.

For added flexibility, our digital paint gauges can measure anodizing thickness on aluminum and protective coatings such as polymers, epoxy, resin and rubber even on dry thin film or thinly coated substrates.

Common measurement applications for these industrial paint & powder coating gauges include:

  • Components for automotive/aerospace
  • Appliances
  • General industrial parts
  • Architectural pieces
