Check powder thickness with Powder Comb before curing to help insure correct cured film thickness the first time through the line. This comb gage will allow you to avoid stripping and re-coating, which can cause problems with adhesion and coating integrity.
Ideal for set-up and quality control
Works on a variety of part sizes, shapes and substrates such as metal, plastic, wood, glass, and more
Easy to carry; convenient shirt pocketsize
Available in microns (metric) or mils (imperial)
Broad stand-offs on both sides of teeth help keep gage perpendicular to surface when measuring
Rugged aluminum construction for long gage life and static control
Precision gage; manufactured to a tolerance ±5 microns or ±0.0002 inch
Protective leather pouch included with each gage
|Units:||Model 1 in mils||Model 2 in mils||Model 4 in microns||Model 6 in microns|
|Tooth Height 1:||3||10||75||500|
|Tooth Height 2:||6||15||150||750|
|Tooth Height 3:||9||20||225||1000|
|Tooth Height 4:||12||25||300||1250|
Apply the dry powder to a rigid substrate. Locate an area sufficiently large to permit both stand-offs (end tabs) of the gage to rest on the substrate in the same plane.
Clean the Powder Comb after each reading with a dry cloth or dry paint brush so that subsequent readings are not affected. Note: Most powders cure to approximately 50% of their dry thickness. Marks left by the gage may affect the characteristics of the cured film.
