Elcometer 3508 & 3560 4 Gap Applicator with Reservoir

The Elcometer 4 Gap Film Applicators are precision engineered from hardened stainless steel to provide four film thicknesses in one gauge.

Simply rotate the applicator to the required thickness, fill the reservoir with the test coating and draw down a uniform stripe.

The Elcometer 3508 is supplied with two reservoirs, ideal for preparing samples for the Elcometer 1720 Abrasion and Washability Testers or for comparing two coatings simultaneously.
