Coating thickness gauge
SaluTron® D6

Combination gauge with 3 Fe- and 2 NFe interchangeable probes

With Fe-probes (F400, F1 and F10) you can measure non-magnetic coatings such as paints, plastics, chromium, copper, zinc, enamel, etc. on metal substrates as steel or iron.

With the NFe-probes (N1 and CN02) you can measure non-conductive layers such as paints, enamels, plastics, rubber, glass, paper, etc. on non-magnetic metal substrates as aluminum, copper, brass, zinc and certain grades of stainless steel. You can also measure anodized aluminum.

Measuring features

  • Measuring range of 0-1250 micron (F1 standard probe)
