Inmont IC Wet Film Thickness Gauges

ASTM D1212, ISO 2808

Interchemical thickness gauges are also called IC gauges or Inmont gauges, ideal for thin film applications, popular with measuring wet ink film at the press.

IC Gauges has long been the standard for measuring wet film thickness in the coatings industry. (U.S. Patent No. 3,128,558). We offer three basic models in various ranges. All models have an accuracy of ± 0.0001 in (2.5 µm) or 2.5% full scale, whichever is greater.

How it's Used

top

The gauge consists of an eccentric inner wheel, supported by two larger outer concentric wheels.

At a specific point, the inner wheel touches and picks up wet film when the gauge is rolled on the coated surface. This critical clearance may be read on a rotating scale.

 

Models

top

Model S - General Use

  • For general use (original interchemical design)
  • Scale is stamped on the outside of the metal wheel; no rotating scale is used

Model R * - Rotating Scale

  • For general critical measurements
  • Has a rotating scale to facilitate accurate gage reading
  • No black plate on the opposite side of the wheel is present

Model L * - Low Inertial with Rotating Scale

  • For very thin coatings and accurate measurements on moving surfaces
  • Inside is hollowed out; very lightweight - only 0.3 lb
  • Black rotating scale to minimize reading errors
  • For identification purposes, this model has a black plate pressed into the wheel on the opposite side of the scale
* U.S. Patent No. 3,128,558

Gauge Holder

top

The gauges may be held between the thumb and forefinger to take a reading, or it may be inserted into the gauge holder. This holder is widely used to measure coatings safely on moving surfaces such as high-speed press rollers. It can also be used on stationary, flat, or curved surfaces since the holder makes it easier to exert a steady, even force on the gauge.

Dimensions: 2.5 x 2 x 7 in (6.4 x 5.1 x 17.8 cm)
Net Weight: 0.4 lbs (0.2 kg)
Shipping Weight: 1.0 lbs (0.5 kg)
