How to Measure Coatings on Concrete using the Elcometer 500 Coating Thickness Gauge
The Elcometer 500 Coating Thickness Gauge accurately measures the thickness of coatings on concrete and other similar substrates* - non destructively.
The Elcometer 500 Coating Thickness Gauge incorporates state of the art electronics and measurement technology to accurately, repeatably and reliably measure up to 9mm (355mils) of coatings on concrete, or other similar substrates.
With a measurement rate of 60 readings per minute in standard mode, and more than 140 readings per minute in scan mode - the Elcometer 500 Coating Thickness Gauge can significantly reduce your inspection times.
The Elcometer 500 Coating Thickness Gauge can also measure film thickness on substrates including plasterboard, drywall, concrete block, brick etc. without damaging the coating.
The coating material library feature simplifies the coating inspection process; there is no need to set up gates, range values or known thickness of the coating. Just select the coating material from the gauge library and start measuring.
Key features of the Elcometer 500 Concrete Coating Thickness Gauge include:
Measuring over 60 readings per minute in standard mode and over 140 readings per minute in scan mode, the Elcometer 500 coating thickness gauge can significantly reduce your inspection times.
The Elcometer 500 will only display the coating thickness reading if the signal strength indicator turns green, preventing false or incorrect readings.
If the coating thickness is outside the measurement range, the Elcometer 500 tells you on the display.
The Elcometer 500 measurement probes are supplied with user replaceable probe tips. If the tip is damaged or wears during use you can replace it and carry on.
The gauge even informs you when you need to change the probe tip, maximising inspection time.
Easy to Use
There is no need to set up gates, range values or know the thickness of the coating, simply select the coating material from the gauge library and start measuring.
The Elcometer 500 gauge and intelligent probes have all been ergonomically designed for continuous use. No force is required to take a reading.
Robust, ergonomic and sealed against dirt and water, equivalent to a rating of IP54, the Elcometer 500 has been designed to work in harsh environments, making it the ideal gauge for the laboratory or the job site.
