Elcometer 456 (Model T) with Straight Ferrous Substrate Probe Elcometer Get Quote



The new Elcometer 456 coating thickness gauge sets new standards measuring the thickness of a coating, helping you to become more efficient.  Integral coating thickness gauges are ideal for single handed operation as the wide footprint of the Bigfoot™ internal probe provides greater stability during dry film thickness measurment - allowing for consistent, repeatable and accurate results.  The Model T features memory, alpha-numeric batching and Bluetooth® communication.
