      Accurate

      Accurate measurements on smooth, rough, thin and curved surfaces

      Measures on smooth, rough, thin and curved surfaces to ±1% in accordance with National & International Standards.

      Elcometer 456 Separate Coating Thickness Gauge with ElcoMaster Mobile

      Powerful

      Store up to 150,000 readings in 2,500 batches

      Measures up to 31mm (1,220mils) of coating on metal substrates with USB and Bluetooth® data output making it compatible with ElcoMaster®

      The Elcometer 456 dry film thickness gauge is available in three different models. Each coating thickness gauge provides the user with increasing functionality - from the entry level Elcometer 456 Paint Thickness Meter Model B, to the top of the range Elcometer 456 Film Thickness Gauge Model T.

      Separate coating thickness gauge models, with their wide range of probes, provide even greater dry film thickness measurement flexibility.

      Compatible with ElcoMaster® software and ElcoMaster® Mobile App, individual coating thickness measurements can be transferred via USB or Bluetooth® to PC or a mobile device for analysis and instant report generation.

      The importance of Coating Thickness Gauge Calibration

      Formal quality systems, such as those described in ISO 9001, require coating thickness gauges to be properly controlled, logged and calibrated. Increasingly, users are specifying that the readings taken by thickness gauges are traceable to National Standards.

      In order to test the accuracy of a particular gauge it is important to have traceable coating thickness standards 

      Elcometer offer a comprehensive range of certified foils together with zero test plates to ensure the accuracy of the coating thickness gauge.

      Get the best performance from the Elcometer 456 Coating Thickness Gauge and make the best use of the gauge’s ±1% accuracy by calibrating the coating thickness instrument to suit the application. This video will guide you through a range of calibration options for both the integral and the separate models.

      *The Elcometer 456 is supplied with a 1 year warranty against manufacturing defects. The warranty can be extended free of charge to 2 years within 60 days of purchase

Summary

Elcometer 456 Separate Coating Thickness Gauge

The Elcometer 456 dry film thickness gauge is available in three different models. Each coating thickness gauge provides the user with increasing functionality - from the entry level Elcometer 456 Paint Thickness Meter Model B, to the top of the range Elcometer 456 Film Thickness Gauge Model T.

Separate coating thickness gauge models, with their wide range of probes, provide even greater dry film thickness measurement flexibility.

Compatible with ElcoMaster® software and ElcoMaster® Mobile App, individual coating thickness measurements can be transferred via USB or Bluetooth® to PC or a mobile device for analysis and instant report generation.

The importance of Coating Thickness Gauge Calibration

Formal quality systems, such as those described in ISO 9001, require coating thickness gauges to be properly controlled, logged and calibrated. Increasingly, users are specifying that the readings taken by thickness gauges are traceable to National Standards.

In order to test the accuracy of a particular gauge it is important to have traceable coating thickness standards 

Elcometer offer a comprehensive range of certified foils together with zero test plates to ensure the accuracy of the coating thickness gauge.

Get the best performance from the Elcometer 456 Coating Thickness Gauge and make the best use of the gauge’s ±1% accuracy by calibrating the coating thickness instrument to suit the application. This video will guide you through a range of calibration options for both the integral and the separate models.

*The Elcometer 456 is supplied with a 1 year warranty against manufacturing defects. The warranty can be extended free of charge to 2 years within 60 days of purchase
