Material thickness is often confused with coating- or layer thickness. With layer thickness we speak about one or multiple layers attached to a substrate. With material thickness we speak about the actual thickness of the substrate itself. Sometimes the material thickness can be measured easily using mechanical measuring tools like callipers or other simple means.


Ultrasonic Wall Thickness Gauge

  • Ultrasonic thickness gauge specifically designed to measure the thickness of metallic and non-metallic materials e.g. aluminium, titanium, plastics, ceramics, glass and plastics. It can also be used to monitor all types of pipes and pressure vessels for loss of thickness due to corrosion or erosion. The gauge is easy to use and will give accurate readings to an accuracy of 1%. This unit is not suitable for cast iron due to its big crystalloid composition.

  • Available in 2 models, Basic and Pro. The Pro version allows you to store data and perform a sound velocity measurement (with a known material thickness), this model is also supplied with an extra probe (5.0MHz). The Basic version has 10 preset sound velocities and does not have the possibility to store data.

PosiTector Ultrasonic Wall Thickness Gauge

  • The PosiTector UTG instruments are handy Ultrasonic Thickness Gauges as Standard or Advanced Models. Both available with a selection of 2 probe styles, UTG C – Corrosion Probe for measuring the effects of corrosion and erosion on tanks, pipes or other structures which only can be accessed on one side or UTG M – Multiple-Echo Probe to measure, non-destructive, the underlying metal (material) thickness to be measured on objects that are already provided with a coating.

The PosiTector UTG Standard models include:
• Monochrome display
• Storage of 250 readings
• Smart Couple TM
• Screen Capture
• No software required

The PosiTector UTG Advanced models include:
• Hi contrast reversible color LCD
• A-Scan
• B-Scan
• Auto Gain control
• Smart CoupleTM
• Scan mode
• Storage of 100,000 readings
• Store thickness
• Onscreen help
• Data transfer via USB to a PC or via Bluetooth Wireless Technology
• Screen Capture
• Onscreen batch annotation
• No software required


Film Thickness Gauge FTG2000

  • Standards: ASTM D4417, ISO 2808, ГОСТ Р 51694
    The TQC Film thickness gauge is a high precision film and foil thickness gauge, especially developed for measuring so-called “replica tapes” as Testex®, used mainly to measure the surface profile.

  • The large clear display makes it easy to read the measurement under all conditions. Values can be displayed in either microns or inches.

  • To minimise the influence of body/hand temperature the gauge is mounted detached from the holder.
    The TQC film thickness gauge operates completely according to “ISO 8503-5 Preparation of steel substrates before application of paints and related products – Surface roughness characteristics of blast-cleaned steel substrates – part 5: Replica tape method for the determination of the surface profile.”

  • As described in this standard the closing force is 1,5 N. The gauge has to have an accuracy of 5 micron and a resolution of 1 micron.
    The TQC Film thickness gauge is supplied in a hardcase.
