Measuring Coating Thickness

The micro-TRI0gloss II μ measures coating gloss and thickness.

The instrument displays 20, 60, and 85° readings for high-gloss to matte finishes. Its Fe/NFe (magnetic/ nonmagnetic) sensor measures thickness (0 to 1,000 μm) on steel as well as aluminum, and it automatically checks gloss to a calibration standard. An easy to scroll through menu gives statistics, differences, and pass/fail information. The device also stores 999 readings and comes with easy-link software for documentation in Excel.
