Paint Inspection Gauge (P.I.G) - Ref: T01-700009


Delivery 1-2 weeks

Our model T01-700009 is a paint inspection gauge which is suitable for use wherever conventional electro-magnetic measuring techniques are ineffective, namely for coatings on wood, concrete, plastics and other non-metallic substrates. Testing with the P.I.G is based on the standardized wedge cut procedure: The coating is cut through at a defined angle in such a way that the cut penetrates the substrate. The layer thickness (s) is calculated on the basis of the slope projection (b) of the cut face, determined using a measuring microscope, and the cutting angle, similarly, the individual layer thicknesses of multilayer systems can be ascertained.
