Product Description

Elcometer 456 Coating Thickness Gauge / Digital Dry Film Thickness Gauges (DFTG)

The new Elcometer 456 Coating Thickness Gauge sets new standards making measuring dry film thickness faster, reliable and accurate; helping you to become more efficient. The Elcometer 456 is available in three different models: B, S and T. Each gauge provides the user with increasing functionality – from the basic Elcometer 456 Model B, to the top of the range Elcometer 456 Model T, with memory, alpha-numeric batching and Bluetooth® communication.

Integral coating thickness gauges are ideal for single handed operation as the wide footprint of the Bigfoot™ internal probe provides greater stability during measurement – allowing for consistent, repeatable and accurate results.

Probe Options

Combining over 45 years of probe design and build experience, with the latest materials and technology, the new Elcometer probes are even more accurate, repeatable and reliable than ever before. Available in a number of designs and scale ranges to meet your specific application, all probes are supplied with an Elcometer test certificate and a set of calibration foils†

 

Straight

  • Measures coatings on both flat and curved surfaces

Right Angle

  • For taking readings where access is restricted

Mini

  • Ideal for edges, narrow pipes and small surfaces areas

PINIP

  • Plug-in probes convert a separate to an integral gauge

Telescopic

  • Extending right angled probes for out of reach areas

Ultra/Scan Probes

  • These probes are fitted with replaceable probe caps – allowing users to take individual readings or scan large surface areas without damaging the probe

 

Waterproof

  • Sealed for use under water at depth, even in diving gloves

High Temp

  • For use on hot coated materials up to 250°C

Anodiser

  • Chemical resistant washable probes ideal for the anodising environment

Armoured

  • Probes with metal reinforced heavy duty cables

Soft Coating

  • Large surface area probes for soft materials (HVCA approved)

Specialist Probes

  • These probes are designed for measuring on specialist substrates, such as graphite, or electroplated components

Measurement Options

Ferrous (F) operation using electromagnetic induction probes for all non-magnetic coatings on a ferrous (magnetic) substrate, e.g. paint, plastic, enamel, powder, rubber, ceramic, galvanising, zinc, sprayed metal (aluminium or zinc), etc. on steel, cast iron, ferritic and duplex stainless steel, substrates etc. Elcometer 456 F gauges accept any ferrous probe.

Non-Ferrous (N) operation using eddy current probes for non-conductive coatings on non-ferrous metal substrates, e.g. anodising, paint, powder, lacquer, plastic, etc. on aluminium, brass, zinc, stainless steel, copper, titanium substrates etc. Elcometer 456 non-ferrous gauges accept any non-ferrous probe

Dual (FNF) operation combines the Ferrous and Non-Ferrous operation in a single probe. The gauge has user selection for auto or manual substrate determination. Elcometer 456 FNF gauges accept all ferrous, non-ferrous and FNF probes.

Technical Specifications

Ferrous Non Ferrous & FNF PINIP
Max Operating Temperature Up to 150°C Up to 80°C Up to 50°C
Storage Temperature -10 – 60°C
Minimum Substrate Thickness 0.3 mm 0.1 mm

 

The stated temperature is the substrate temperature, and the duty cycle of the probe must be reduced to ensure a minimal temperature build-up within the probe.

All Elcometer probes are supplied with a Test Certificate and a set of calibration foils appropriate to the scale range of the probe

†Foil sets are appropriate to the separate probe’s scale range
