Elcometer 456 Coating Thickness Gauge

Elcometer 456 Coating Thickness Gauge Graphic

The Elcometer 456 sets new standards by providing reliable and accurate coating thickness measurements. The Elcometer 456 is available in four different models. Each gauge provides the user with increasing functionality - from the entry level Elcometer 456 Model E, to the top of the range Elcometer 456 Model T.

Integral gauges are ideal for single handed operation as the wide footprint of the Bigfoot™ internal probe provides greater stability during measurement - allowing for consistent, repeatable and accurate results.

Separate models, with their wide range of probes, provide even greater measurement flexibility.
