The Elcometer 500 Coating Thickness Gauge accurately measures the thickness of coatings on concrete and other similar substrates* - non destructively.
**REQUIRES EITHER A C1 OR C2 PROBE PURCHASE FOR COMPLETE WORKING UNIT**
Fast and accurate, the Elcometer 500 Coating Thickness Gauge takes repeatable and reproducible dry film thickness measurements of coatings on concrete up to 9mm‡ thick – without damaging the coating.
Taking over 60 readings per minute in standard mode and 140+ readings per minute in scan mode; the
Elcometer 500 Coating Thickness Gauge allows users to inspect more coatings in less time. With a choice of intelligent, ergonomic probes, designed for continuous use and field replaceable probe tips you can inspect all day, everyday.
The built in signal strength indicator on the Elcometer 500 Coatings on Concrete Gauge prevents false or incorrect readings, as the gauge only displays the coating thickness measurement if the signal strength indicator goes green.
Robust, ergonomic and sealed against dirt and water, equivalent to a rating of IP54, the Elcometer 500 Dry Film Thickness Gauge has been designed to work in harsh environments.
Incredibly easy to use, the Elcometer 500 Coating Thickness Gauge for concrete can be used in accordance with ASTM D6132, SSPC PA9 & ISO 2808 Method 10.
Compatible with ElcoMaster® software and ElcoMaster® Mobile App, individual coating thickness measurements can be transferred via USB or Bluetooth® to PC or a mobile device for analysis and instant report generation.
Key Features of the Elcometer 500 Coating Thickness Gauge:
Measuring over 60 readings per minute in standard mode and over 140 readings per minute in scan mode, the Elcometer 500 coating thickness gauge can significantly reduce your inspection times.
The Elcometer 500 will only display the coating thickness reading if the signal strength indicator turns green, preventing false or incorrect readings.
If the coating thickness is outside the measurement range, the
Elcometer 500 tells you on the display.
The Elcometer 500 measurement probes are supplied with user replaceable probe tips. If the tip is damaged or wears during use you can replace it and carry on.
The gauge even informs you when you need to change the probe tip, maximising inspection time.
Easy to Use
There is no need to set up gates, range values or know the thickness of the coating, simply select the coating material from the gauge library and start measuring.
The Elcometer 500 gauge and intelligent probes have all been ergonomically designed for continuous use. No force is required to take a reading.
Robust, ergonomic and sealed against dirt and water, equivalent to a rating of IP54, the Elcometer 500 has been designed to work in harsh environments, making it the ideal gauge for the laboratory or the job site.
How to Calibrate the Elcometer 500 Coating Thickness Gauge:
Incorporating state of the art ultrasonic measurement technology, each gauge can be calibrated in one of three ways - to a known thickness of the coating to be inspected; by setting the speed of sound of the coating; or by selecting the coating from a list of generic, or user defined coating materials.
Once the gauge has been calibrated, the Elcometer 500 has a measurement accuracy of ±2%.
How to create a coating thickness sample for the Elcometer 500 using the Elcometer Coating Calibration Mould (CCM):
By using the Elcometer Coating Calibration Mould the Elcometer 500 calibration is traceable to national and international standards. The user defined coatings can be transferred into the Material Coatings Library within ElcoMaster® for use, at any time, on any Elcometer 500 gauge. Select the coatings from your list and transfer them to any Elcometer 500 gauge.
More information on how to use the Elcometer Coating Calibration Mould with the Elcometer 500 Coating Thickness Gauge can be found on the Accessories page.
