Paint Inspection Gauge P.I.G.

Coating Thickness Gauge Paint Inspection Gauge P.I.G.

Coating Thickness Gauge according to DIN 50 986 (wedge cutting principle), suitable for measuring all coatings on any base material (steel, non-ferrous metals, plastics, wood, concrete, ceramics, reflective coatings etc.). In addition the structure of multiple coating systems can be analyzed. A special cutting tool supplied with the gauge is used to incise a small precision V-groove through the paint film and in-to the substrate. This V-groove is observed vertically with an illuminated microscope bearing a measuring scale.

The instrument includes three cutters

Cutter No. 1 Range 20-2000 microns (graduation 20 microns)
Cutter No. 2 Range 10-1000 microns (graduation 10 microns)
Cutter No. 3 Range 2- 200 microns (graduation 2 microns)
