The new Elcometer 456 coating thickness gauge sets new standards in measuring the thickness of a coating

Ideal for structures & coatings assessment. A great stainless steel gauge, also used for aluminium and other non-magnetic metal surfaces. Single-handed operation as the wide footprint of the Bigfoot™ internal probe provides greater stability during dry film thickness measurement. The incorporated (probe-less) gauge allows for consistent, repeatable, and accurate results. 

Separate coating thickness gauge models, with their wide range of probes, provide even greater dry film thickness measurement flexibility. Halve inspection times using the Elcometer 456 Separate Coating Thickness Gauge with Scan Probe!

Elcometer 456 coating thickness gauge

Beginning with Model E and ending with Model T, the Elcometer 456 is available in four different models. Each model level offers increased functionality designed to meet your specific needs. Our most advanced model, Model T features memory, alpha-numeric batching, and Bluetooth® communication.

Calibration

As the gauge is factory calibrated, the calibration cannot be adjusted by the user and the gauge should be returned to Elcometer for re-calibration. The user can, however, verify the accuracy of the gauge calibration in the field using the ‘Test Calibration’ option. To test the calibration, press Cal/Test Calibration and follow the on-screen instructions. Just select the relevant surface profile and start measuring.

How to use Elcometer 456:

1. Whilst holding the gauge perpendicular, gently place the probe onto the surface.
· Do not drag the probe across the surface or bang the probe down hard onto the surface as this will damage the probe tip resulting in inaccurate readings.
· >1500µm’ (’>60mils’) indicates a reading over the probe range.

2. For subsequent readings, lift the probe off and then replace it on the coated surface.
· Do not allow the probe to hover over the surface as this could result in a false reading.

The first reading taken is displayed next to ‘1′, the second next to ‘2′ etc. When the third reading has been taken, the average (mean, xbar) of the three individual readings displayed is shown (X:).

The average (mean, xbar) reading is cleared when a fourth reading is taken.

By selecting ‘Send Individual Readings’ or ‘Send Mean (xbar) Reading’ via Menu/Bluetooth, the user can choose to transfer the individual readings or just the average (mean, xbar) reading values to ® ® ElcoMaster or ElcoMaster Mobile Apps – see Section 7 on page 7.
