Mikrotest®

Coating Thickness Gauge With No Power Supply and No Calibration

All Instruments Conform To National And International Standards (DIN, ISO, BS & ASTM)

Various Models Mikrotest
  • for paint or electroplating
  • for thin and thick coatings
 
The balanced measuring system ensures accurate readings at any angle
  • Horizontal, vertical, overhead

  • Curved surfaces

  • Round parts

Features two types of gauges - manual or fully automatic - for less operating errors.

  • Highest accuracy with simplest operation
  • No calibration necessary. Simple set-up and measurement
  • All gauges are without power or battery
  • Easy to read scale with retention of the reading
  • One point measurement with a non-wearing probe
  • A robust metal case houses the precision measuring system.
  • Resistant to mechanical shocks, acids and solvents.

Measuring Principle
The measurement of the coating thickness is dependent on magnetic attraction. The attractive force is related to the distance between a permanent magnet and a steel substrate. This distance represents the thickness of the coating to be measured. The magnet is lifted from the surface by means of a spring connected to the magnet arm. The spring is tensioned by means of the thumb wheel and the coating thickness is shown directly on the scale.
