Product Description

Elcometer 500 Concrete Coating Thickness Gauge The Elcometer 500 Concrete Coating Thickness Gauge accurately measures the thickness of coatings on concrete and other similar substrates (eg plasterboard, drywall, concrete block, brick) – non destructively.

Features

  • Fast and accurate, the Elcometer 500 Coating Thickness Gauge takes repeatable and reproducible dry film thickness measurements of coatings on concrete up to 10mm‡ thick (Epoxy coatings, thickness on other materials may vary) or other similar substrates – without damaging the coating.
  • Easy to read, user definable display with automatic screen brightness
  • Store up to 100,000 readings in up to 1,000 alpha-numeric batches
  • Rugged, intelligent ergonomic probes, designed for continuous use and field replaceable probe tips you can inspect all day, everyday
  • Measure up to 10mm
    • C1 150 – 2,500μm & C2 750 – 10,000μm
  • Measure more than 60 readings per minute in standard mode and over 140 readings per minute in scan mode – allows users to inspect more coatings in less time.
  • Rugged, dust & waterproof design equivalent to IP54, ideal for almost all environments
  • The built in signal strength indicator on the Elcometer 500 Coatings on Concrete Gauge prevents false or incorrect readings, as the gauge only displays the coating thickness measurement if the signal strength indicator goes green.
  • Incredibly easy to use, can be used in accordance with ASTM D6132, SSPC PA9 & ISO 2808 Method 10
  • USB & Bluetooth® data output to PC and Android™ or iOS mobile devices
  • Compatible with ElcoMaster® software and ElcoMaster® Mobile App, individual coating thickness measurements can be transferred via USB or Bluetooth® to PC or a mobile device for analysis and instant report generation.

Fast

Measuring over 60 readings per minute in standard mode and over 140 readings per minute in scan mode, the Elcometer 500 coating thickness gauge can significantly reduce your inspection times.

Reliable

The Elcometer 500 will only display the coating thickness reading if the signal strength indicator turns green, preventing false or incorrect readings.

If the coating thickness is outside the measurement range, the Elcometer 500 informs you on the display.

Intelligent

The Elcometer 500 measurement probes are supplied with user replaceable probe tips. If the tip is damaged or wears during use you can replace it and carry on.

The gauge even informs you when you need to change the probe tip, maximising inspection time.

Easy to Use

There is no need to set up gates, range values or know the thickness of the coating, simply select the coating material from the gauge library and start measuring.

Ergonomic

The Elcometer 500 gauge and intelligent probes have all been ergonomically designed for continuous use. No force is required to take a reading.

Rugged

Robust, ergonomic and sealed against dirt and water, equivalent to a rating of IP54, the Elcometer 500 has been designed to work in harsh environments, making it the ideal gauge for the laboratory or the job site.

  1. Coating Material Library

The Elcometer 500’s advanced measurement technology means that you no longer need to know how thick the coating should be before taking a reading, and you don’t need to set any measurement gates. Simply switch on the gauge, select the coating from the calibration library, and take a reading – it is that easy.

  1. Material Thickness Calibration

To obtain the greatest measurement accuracy, the Elcometer 500 can be calibrated using a known thickness of the coating to be measured.  If a sample of known thickness is not available, the Elcometer 500 Coating Calibration Mould (CCM) can be used to create a coating of known thickness which is traceable to both national and international standards.

  1. Sound Velocity Calibration

The Elcometer 500 can be calibrated by entering the speed of sound from the Product Datasheet available from the coating manufacturer.

 

Once the gauge has been calibrated, the Elcometer 500 Concrete Coating Thickness Gauge has a measurement accuracy of ±2%.

1. Place the coating calibration mould on a flat surface and completely fill the sample chamber with test coating. 2. Using the plastic scraper, scrape over the coating allowing the excess to fall into the overflow chamber. Allow the coating to dry. 3. When fully cured, calibrate a ferrous coating thickness gauge on the side of the CCM then measure and record the dry thickness at the centre of the coating. 4. Measure the same point using the Elcometer 500.

Enter the dry film thickness measurement and save it in the Elcometer 500’s Coating Materials list.

 

By using the Elcometer Coating Calibration Mould the Elcometer 500 calibration is traceable to national and international standards. The user defined coatings can be transferred into the Material Coatings Library within ElcoMaster® for use, at any time, on any Elcometer 500 gauge. Select the coatings from your list and transfer them to any Elcometer 500 gauge.
