Coating thickness gauge Galvanotest

Coating thickness gauge Galvanotest

Price: ₹00

Brand: ElektroPhysik


Ideally suited to measuring coating thickness in virtually any single or multi-layered coatings. The GalvanoTest uses the coulometric method to measure galvanised coatings such as chrome, nickel, cadmium, copper, brass, silver, gold, tin or zinc both on metals and non-metals.


Destructive measurement of:

Electroplated coatings like chromium, nickel, cadmium, copper, brass, silver, gold, tin, zinc on metallic or non-metallic substrates


8 de-plating speeds from 0.3 to 40 µm / min

Measuring surface ranging between 0.25 and 8 mm²

Measuring range between 50 nm and 75 µm / 0.002 - 3 mils

An electrolyte beaker (accessory) to measure wires

Variable shut-down speeds to measure alloy zones

A wide range of special accessories for measurements on small components and wires
