Elcometer 121/4 Paint Inspection Gauge (PIG)

Product Description

The Elcometer 121/4 Paint Inspection Gauge (P.I.G) is a hand-held paint gauge that offers a quick, versatile method of coating examination and measurement in a portable, easy-to-use format.

The paint inspection gauge is available in two versions, Standard and Top:
– Standard paint gauges can be used for microscopic coating examination and destructive measurement of coating thickness.
– Top inspection gauges have the same functionality as standard paint gauges and can also be used for cross hatch adhesion testing using optional tools.

Features of the Elcometer 121/4 Paint Inspection Gauge (PIG)

• Compact and convenient, ideal for paint thickness measurement in confined areas
