Coating thickness gauge manufacturers and suppliers are dedicated to provide a very precise and easy to use testing instrument that is useful in quality testing of coating in a variety of industries. In industries where paints are used, it is very important that the quality of the paints is of utmost quality so that it could be able to protect the surfaces on which the paint is applied.
The paints are meant to enhance the aesthetics of the surfaces and also protect the surfaces from various external factors such as water, moisture, dust and corrosion. There are many different properties of paints that contribute to the quality of the paint products. One such property is the thickness of the paint coating applied on the surface. The manufacturers need to ensure that the coating of the paints is thick enough that it will not be scratched off due to slight forces that these surfaces are subjected. The coating thickness gauge is the most precise and useful testing instrument that can be used for testing the paint coating thickness with great precision and accuracy.
Pacorr comes under the list of the most reliable coating thickness gauge manufacturers and suppliers that have been providing the most accurate and precise testing instruments that have been used in many industries for the purpose of testing the thickness of various protective coatings applied on the surfaces. In industries, as the working conditions are very harsh and extreme, the surfaces there are covered with coatings and paints so that they stay protected from the factors such as debris, dust, moisture and corrosion. These coatings are responsible for the complete protection of these surfaces hence they must be of the best quality. The manufacturers of such coating products need to ensure that they are producing the best quality of the products. In addition to that, when the coatings are applied on different surfaces, it must be ensured that coating thickness is uniform in nature and there are no discrepancies regarding the thickness of the coating as this can lead to lesser protection and damage to the surface. It is essential to measure the coating thickness with the help of proper instruments so that it could be ensured that the coating will be able to provide the best protection to the surface where it is applied.
The coating thickness gauge works on the principle of eddy current. It sends an electromagnetic wave to the surface and records the time required for the current to travel the whole circuit formed by the instrument and the surface. The instrument is capable of providing the best accurate data for the coating thickness and ensures the best quality of the products delivered to the customers.

What is the working principle of coating thickness gauges?
The coating thickness gauge is designed to work on the principle of electromagnetic induction and eddy current.
Can the same product be used for both ferrous and non-ferrous materials?
No. There are two different instruments meant for both ferrous and non-ferrous substrates. As the working principle for both the instruments is different, single instrument cannot be used for both ferrous and non-ferrous substrates.
Is the instrument operated directly through power supply?
No. The instrument is powered by 4 dry cell batteries and does not require any direct power supply.
Is the instrument easily portable?
Yes. The instrument is designed to have a compact size and light weight and hence is easily portable to different parts of an industry.
What is the operating temperature range for the instrument?
The Instrument is designed to operate in a wide range of temperatures from 00C to 500C.
