Elcometer 550 Non-Contact Powder Thickness Gauge

The Elcometer 550 offers the user an unrivalled approach to measuring uncured powder thicknesses – without touching the powder. Traditional pre-cure powder thickness measurement requires contact with the coating however, the Elcometer 550 – using proven third generation ultrasonic technology – allows coating thickness measurements to be taken before the powder is cured and without touching the surface; allowing accurate prediction of the final coating thickness.

Features

By carefully controlling the thickness of powder applied to a product, you can minimise your powder usage and ensure the quality of your coating. As contact measurement solutions damage the finish and do not predict the cured coating thickness, measuring the powder thickness pre-cure requires a non-contact solution.

  • Accurately predicts the cured coating thickness within ± 5% of the reading or ±5μm
  • Ergonomic gun designed for comfort when taking multiple readings
  • Hand held sensor allows easy positioning of the gun for fast measurement
  • Large illuminated colour display with positioning graph to guide orientation of sensor probe
  • Tough aluminium case, ideal for testing in an industrial environment

Easy to Use

  • Easy to read, large colour display
  • Adjustable screen brightness for all test conditions
  • Ergonomic probe – ideal for continuous testing
  • Can be used straight out of the box with minimal set up time
  • On-screen guidance graph and handle LEDs help you orientate the probe sensor for fast, accurate measurements.

Reliable

  • Fast, accurate and repeatable results
  • Can be used in accordance with ASTM D7378-Procedure C
  • Proven, 3rd Generation, airborne ultrasonic technology
  • User-programmable setup to account for varying powder shrinkage rates

Enhanced Technology

  • Measure thicknesses from 30 – 110μm
  • 1mm² measurement area – ideal for flat, curved and small surfaces
  • Test coatings on a wide range of substrates, including metal, wood, MDF, plastic and pre-coated surfaces
