Introducing ElektroPhysik Coating Thickness Gauge MiniTest 700 series by Obsnap Instruments

What is a Coating Thickness Gauge?

Also known as a paint meter or mil gauge, it can be used to measure dry film thickness* (DFT).

*DFT measurement helps us to evaluate a coating's useful-life, its appearance & performance, including compliance to International Standards.

coating's thickness does not only determine its protection against corrosion, it also helps to avoid premature failure of its protection when applied onto a metal and non-metal substrates, like metal, wood, etc.

coating thickness gauge helps with ensuring if a coating's thickness is at its 
optimum state after it is applied onto a substrate.

The industries that are known to analyse the DFT of their products are Automotive and Coat & Paint Industries. Or anyone who needs to measure the coating thickness of a product.

ElektroPhysik Coating Thickness Gauge - MiniTest 700 series are one of the coating thickness gauges, marketed by Obsnap Instruments.

The ElektroPhysik Coating Thickness Gauge MiniTest 700 series is ranked as one of the most accurate and versatile coating thickness measuring devices.

It comes with 3 models:

  • MiniTest 720 has an integrated sensor.
  • MiniTest 730 has a fixed, external sensor.
  • MiniTest 740 has a convertible sensor that allows users optionally measure with an external or integrated probe.

The MiniTest 700 series, facilitates non-destructive coating measurement of:
  • Non-magnetic coatings - paint, synthetic material, chromium etc.
    • On ferromagnetic substrates (e.g. steel)
  • Insulating coatings - varnish, enamel, synthetic material, anodising aluminium, etc.
    • On conductive substrates like aluminium, copper, austenitic stainless steel and other non-ferrous metals.
