Elcometer 3233 Pfund Thickness Gauge

Product Description

Elcometer 3233 Pfund Thickness Gauge

The Elcometer 3233 Pfund Thickness Gauge is used to measure film thickness of wet translucent products such as varnishes, paints and oils.

The Elcometer 3233 Pfund Thickness Gauge available in aluminium or stainless steel consists of two concentric cylinders, one sliding inside the other.  A spherical glass lens, which has engraved measurements, is fitted to the end of the central cylinder and when pressed into the wet film, leaves a circular trace. The diameter of the mark on the lens is measured and, using the supplied conversion table, the thickness of the coating can be easily assessed.
  • Ideal for measuring the thickness of wet translucent products such as varnish, oils etc
  • Measurement range of 2.25 – 360µm.

Elcometer 3230-1 Coil Coating Wet Film Wheels

Product Description

Elcometer 3230-1 Coil Coating Wet Film Wheels

The Elcometer 3230-1 Coil Coating Wet Film Wheels is similar to the Elcometer 3230 Wet Film Wheel, but is designed for use in the coil coating process. The outer wheels are knurled to allow measurements to be taken on slippery coatings or on fast moving substrates. By rolling the gauge through a wet coating, the centre wheel eventually touches the film. This point on the scale indicates the thickness. A convenient mounting handle for the wheel is available in two lengths; 15cm & 50cm; please order separately.

When the volume to solids ratio of the coating is known (generally found on the product data sheet supplied by the manufacturer), the wet film thickness can be used to predict the dry film thickness.

Elcometer 3230 Wet Film Wheel

Product Description

Elcometer 3230 Wet Film Wheel

The Elcometer 3230 Wet Film Wheel is a high precision, accurate and easy to use instrument, which consists of a set of three wheels. The central wheel is of a smaller diameter and is eccentric relative to the two outer wheels. By rolling the gauge through a wet coating, the centre wheel eventually touches the film. This point on the scale indicates the thickness.

A convenient mounting handle for the wheel is available in two lengths; 15cm  & 50cm; please order separately.

When the volume to solids ratio of the coating is known (generally found on the product data sheet supplied by the manufacturer), the wet film thickness can be used to predict the dry film thickness.

Elcometer 112 Hexagonal Aluminium Wet Film Combs

Product Description

Elcometer 112 Hexagonal Aluminium Wet Film Combs

The Elcometer 112 Hexagonal Aluminium Wet Film Combs are hexagonal precision formed stainless steel wet film combs.  They are long lasting, reusable and supplied in a range of thicknesses measuring up to 3000µm. These six sided combs vary in size, giving either 24 or 36 measurement steps, depending on the comb and providing increased accuracy.

Using a wet film comb

Place a comb perpendicular to and touching the substrate. Hold the comb in position and wait a few seconds until the teeth are wet. Remove the comb from the film. The wet film thickness lies between the biggest value ‘coated’ or ‘wet’ tooth and the smallest value ‘uncoated’ or ‘dry’ tooth.
