Product Description

All Elcometer 456 Coating Thickness Gauge probes are fully interchangeable and are available in a number of designs and scale ranges to meet your specific application.

Ferrous coating thickness gauge probes measure non-magnetic coatings on ferro-magnetic substrates. Elcometer 456 Coating Thickness Ferrous Gauges accept any ferrous probe.
Non-Ferrous coating thickness gauge probes measure non-conductive coatings on non-ferrous metal substrates and Elcometer 456 Non-Ferrous Gauges accept any non-ferrous probe.
Dual Ferrous Non-Ferrous probes measure both ferrous and non-ferrous applications with automatic substrate detection. Elcometer 456 Ferrous Non-Ferrous Coating Thickness Gauges accept all Ferrous, Non-Ferrous and Dual Ferrous Non-Ferrous probes.

Standard Straight Probes

Standard probes measure coatings on both flat and curved surfaces

Mini Probes

Mini probes are ideal for harder to reach areas and edges

Right Angle Probes

Right Angle Probes are designed for taking coating thickness readings where access is restricted

Plug-in Probes

Plug-in probes convert a separate coating thickness gauge into an integral gauge

Telescopic Probes

Telescopic Probes extends right angle probes for out of reach areas

Scan Probes

Scan Probes allows users to take individual measurement or scan large surface areas without damaging the probes – fitted with replaceable probe caps

Waterproof Probes

Waterproof Probes are sealed for use underwater at depth

High Temperature Probes

High Temperature Probes for use on hot coated materials up to 250°C

Anodising Probes

Anodising Probes are chemical resistant washable probes – ideal for the anodising environment

Armoured Cable Probes

Armoured Cable Probes with metal reinforced heavy duty cables, reducing the risk of cable damage

Soft Coating Probes

Soft Coating Probes have large surface area probes for soft reach materials (HVCA approved)

Specialist Probes

Specialist Probes are designed for measuring coating thickness on specialist substrates such as graphite or electroplated components

Elcometer probes have a maximum operating temperature of 80°C with the exception of separate ferrous probes 150°C and Hi-Temperature PINIP’s 250°C. 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 coating thickness gauge probes are supplied with a Test Certificate and a set of calibration foils appropriate to the scale range of the probe.
