Elcometer 415 Paint and Powder Gauge - Discontinued


Replaced by the Elcometer 415 Industrial Paint & Powder Thickness Gauge

The Elcometer 415 Paint and Powder Coating Thickness Gauge provides a simple, accurate and reliable way to measure coating thickness on all smooth ferrous and non-ferrous metal surfaces.

The gauge auto-switches to read on either ferrous or non-ferrous substrates. This is ideal for measuring paint or powder on both steel and aluminium surfaces such as car body panels or in a powder shop.

The paint and powder gauge features a large, easy-to-read screen and is capable of taking more than 60 dry film thickness readings per minute.

The central Bigfoot™ internal probe, with the integrated V-groove, allows repeatable paint and powder thickness readings on both flat and curved surfaces. On screen instructions, in over 20 languages, make the gauge useable straight from the box.


  • Angled, large display for viewing from all angles
  • Metric or Imperial paint and powder measurements - displays readings in mils or microns
  • Fast and accurate with more than 60 readings per minute
  • Factory calibrated for use straight from the box, with 4 calibration foils supplied
  • Simple “Zero Cal” feature with fixed calibration setting if access to the uncoated substrate is not available
  • Ergonomic design for maximum comfort
  • Bigfoot™ probe for repeatable results
  • On screen instructions in over 20 languages
