Product Description

This instrument 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.

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..

The Elcometer 3230 Coil Coating Wet Film Wheels can be used in accordance with:

• ASTM D 1212-A
• AS/NZS 1580.107.3
• BS 3900-C5-7A*
• ISO 2808-1B
• ISO 2808-7A*
• JIS K 5600-1-7
• NF T30-125

* Standards not in bold have been superseded but are still recognised in some industries

The Elcometer 3230 Wet Film Wheel is a high precision, accurate and easy to use instrument which measures the wet film thickness of coatings.

A wet film wheel has two circular outer wheels which rest on the substrate, and a smaller central wheel which is eccentric relative to the outer wheels.

By rolling the gauge through a wet coating, the central wheel eventually touches the film. This point on the scale indicates the thickness.

This Elcometer 3230 Coil Coating Wet Film Wheel 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.

Elcometer offer a wide range of wet film wheels to measure wet films of various thicknesses.
