BEVS 1703 Powder Thickness Gauge
Powder coat paint thickness: Powder coaters must apply coatings evenly to cover the entire parts to be painted, make sure that gloss is consistent and last but not the least, be cost-effective by not over- or under applying paint so as to maximize profit margins. These are critical challenges faced by powder coating companies every day. Given the fact that the thickness of uncured powder coating can be used to calculate its' thickness in a dry state -applied powders, developing an instrument to measure the thickness of powder coatings before the curing process is huge progress towards cost-effective powder coating application.
Besides Air Ultrasonic technology using sound waves and limited in the thickness measurement range of up to 100 micrometers on flat surfaces, the Photothermal technology uses thermal waves to non destructively / no contact measurement of powder coating as prescribed in DIN EN 15042-2 standard of 2016. Measure the thickness of parts of any shape and size on more than 90% metallic substrate.
