Dry Film Thickness

Dry Film Thickness is a critical measurement in the coating application process. It provides vital information as to the expected life of the substrate, the product’s fitness for purpose, its appearance and ensures compliance with a host of International Standards.

Quality systems, such as those described in ISO 9000, ISO 17025 and Guide 25, require that gauges be properly controlled, logged and in calibration.  Increasingly, users are specifying that the readings taken by gauges are traceable to National Standards.


In 1947, before the introduction of consumer electronics, Elcometer launched one of the world’s first non-destructive coating thickness gauges, the Elcometer 101.


For more than 6 decades, Elcometer have been world leaders in coating inspection and coating thickness measurement, offering a wide range of accurate digital and mechanical dry film thickness gauges.


Elcometer’s latest innovation, the new Elcometer 456 sets new standards in coating thickness measurements. Available in a range of models for measuring dry film thickness on ferrous & non-ferrous metal substrates, the new Elcometer 456 is even more powerful, rugged and easier to use than ever before.
