Digital Coating Thickness Gauges (Dry Film Thickness Gauge)

Digital coating thickness gauges (also known as paint meters) are the most widely used due to their high level of accuracy and they can be used to measure the coating thickness on almost any substrate, whether ferrous or non-ferrous.

Elcometer offer a range of digital coating thickness gauges from the new Elcometer 456 – available with either integral or separate probes, the Elcometer 415 Paint and Powder Thickness Gauge, to the Elcometer 311 Automotive Refinishing Gauge.


Elcometer 456 Integral Coating Thickness Gauge


Integral coating thickness gauges are ideal for single handed operation as the wide footprint of the Bigfoot™ internal probe provides greater stability during measurement – allowing for consistent, repeatable and accurate results.

The Elcometer 456 is available in four different models: E, B, S and T. Each gauge provides the user with increasing functionality – from the entry level Elcometer 456 E, to the top of the range Elcometer 456 T, with memory, alpha-numeric batching and Bluetooth® communication.


Elcometer 456 Separate Coating Thickness Gauge


Separate models, with their wide range of probes, provide even greater measurement flexibility.

All probes are fully interchangeable; whilst ferrous gauges accept any ferrous probe and non-ferrous gauges accept any non-ferrous probes the dual FNF gauges accept all ferrous, non-ferrous and dual FNF probes.


Elcometer 415 Paint and Powder Gauge


The Elcometer 415 Paint and Powder Coating Thickness Gauge provides a simple, accurate and reliable way to measure coatings on all smooth ferrous and non-ferrous metal surfaces.

The gauge auto-switches to read on either ferrous or non-ferrous substrates. This is ideal for measuring paint or powder on both steel and aluminium surfaces such as car body panels or in a powder shop.


Elcometer 355 Coating Thickness Gauge


The Elcometer 355’s watchwords are accuracy, simplicity, versatility and durability making this a true state of the art hand held measuring system packed with time-saving and cost-cutting features.

Available as a standard and top model, the unit’s large memory stores up to 10,000 readings in batches and data can be output to PC, datalogger or printer as required.

With a comprehensive range of Probe Modules available, simply select the most appropriate for the application. All modules are supplied with calibration foils.

  • ±1% or 1µm, whichever is the greater, accuracy
  • Rugged aluminium case designed for the toughest environments
  • ElcoMaster™ 2.0 software supplied.
  • Full statistical analysis – mean standard deviation, number of readings, highest and lowest value
  • RS232 output
  • Date and time stamp

Each gauge is supplied without a probe allowing the choice of the correct probe for the relevant applications.


Elcometer 311 Automotive Refinishing Gauge


The Elcometer 311 paint meter has been specifically designed to meet the requirements of today’s automotive refinishing market and is available in two models.

The Ferrous paint meter is ideal for measuring coatings on steel body panels. The FNF paint meter enables the user to measure on both steel and aluminium panels using one gauge with automatic switching.

Pre-calibrated on steel and aluminium car body panels, the Elcometer 311 paint meter is very easy to use. Checkpieces are supplied with each instrument to verify accuracy.
