These are easy to use digital thickness meters with built in probes to measure Ferrous & Non-Ferrous substrates.  Sold in Canada by from our Brampton (Toronto, Ontario) warehouse, these Coating Thickness Gauges are ease to use and accurate meters to check the thickness of non-magnetic coatings on both magnetic and non-magnetic materials.


  • It meets the standards of ISO2178 , DIN, ASTM and BS. Suitable for the laboratory and for use in harsh field conditions.
  • The F probes measure the thickness of nonmagnetic materials (e.g. paint, plastic, porcelain enamel, copper, zinc, aluminium, chrome etc.) on magnetic materials (e.g. iron, nickle etc.) . Often used to measure the thickness of galvanizing layer, lacquer layer, porcelain enamel layer, phosphide layer, copper tile, aluminium tile, some alloy tile, paper etc.
  • The N probes (only for SHGLTM009-FN) measure the thickness of nonmagnetic coatings on non-magnetic metals.It is used on anodizing, varnish, paint, enamel, plastic coatings, powder, etc. applied to aluminum, brass, non-magnetic stainless steel, etc.
  • Automatic substrate recognition.
  • Manual or automatic shut down.
  • Two measurement mode: Single and Continuous
  • Wide measuring range and high resolution.
  • Metric/Imperial conversion.
  • Digital display gives exact reading with no guessing or errors.
  • Can communicate with PC computer for statistics and printing by the optional cable and the software for RS232C interface.
