Product Description

Elcometer 456 IPC Industrial Protective Coating Thickness Gauge

The Elcometer 456 Industrial Protective Coating Thickness Gauge* is designed to measure dry film thickness on shot or grit blasted steel substrates.

Pre-calibrated with 4 profile ranges to ensure accurate coating thickness measurement on blasted substrates, the Elcometer 456 IPC Thickness Gauge is fast and very easy to use.

* USA patent number US6243 661

 

Key Features

  • Pre-calibrated with 4 profile ranges
  • Displays 3 individual readings together with their average in microns or mils
  • Stores up to 150,000 readings in 2,500 batches
  • Built in integral probe for stable, repeatable readings on flat or curved surfaces
  • USB or Bluetooth® data output to the ElcoMaster® or your own software application

 

Profile Ranges

The user selectable surface profiles include smooth, fine, medium and coarse ranges.

The gauge’s built in integral ferrous probe allows thickness measurements to be taken on flat or curved surfaces, in mils or microns.
