Coating Thickness

Coating thickness is arguably the single most important measurement made during the application and inspection of protective coatings. Regular film thickness measurement helps control material costs, manage application efficiency, maintain finish quality and ensure compliance with contract specifications.


At Hodge Clemco we stock a various tools to help,  including the PosiTector range.


We stock the PosiTector 200 ultrasonic gauge. This measures coatings on wood, concrete and plastics non destructively. Advanced models measure up to three individual layers of thickness in a multi layer system. They feature a graphic readout for detailed analysis of the coating system.

The PosiTector 6000 coating  gauge allows users to measure on all metal substrates. You can select from a variety of measurement ranges and probe styles including; cabled probes and micro probes.

PosiTest DFT (Dry Film Thickness) is a digital coating  gauge for all metal substrates. it is the economical choice that retains the uncompromising quality of DeFelsko coating thickness and inspection instruments. Providing fast and repeatable measurements, with rates of over 60 readings per minute. Available in two models: Ferrous and Combo.

Wet film thickness  (WFT) can be measured using a WFT Comb Gauge.
