Elcometer 123 Surface Profile Gauge img

Elcometer 123 Surface Profile Gauge

The Elcometer 123 Surface Profile Gauge is an easy to use analogue gauge which measures the peak to valley height of a blast cleaned surface in a similar way to the Elcometer 223 & Elcometer 224. The degree of the surface profile is important as it affects a coatings overall performance and determines aspects such as adhesion, coverage & the overall volume of paint to use.

Elcometer 122 Testex Replica Tape img

Elcometer 122 Testex® Replica Tape

The Elcometer 122 Testex® Replica Tape is designed to provide a permanent mould of the surface profile, which can then be measured using a thickness gauge. It consists of foam with a non-compressible backing. The foam side is rubbed into the surface providing a permanent mould of the peak-to-valley profile. The profile of the surface can then be measured using the Elcometer 124 Thickness Gauge.

Elcometer 134A Chloride Ion Test Kit For Abrasives img

Elcometer 134A Chloride Ion Test Kit For Abrasives

Chlorides deposited on a surface by contaminated abrasives during blasting can cause a coating to fail prematurely. Contamination can build up, particularly if the blast media is recycled several times. Using the Elcometer 134A Chloride Ion Test in the field will accurately identify contamination and prevent costly surface-related failures.

Elcometer 134S Chloride Ion Test Kit For Surfaces img

Elcometer 134S Chloride Ion Test Kit For Surfaces

Chloride salts left on the surface before the first coat of paint is applied can result in the coating system being forced off the surface by corrosion or blistering before the full life of the coating has been reached. The Elcometer 134S Chloride Ion Test Kit For Surfaces test method: A latex sleeve is filled with a Chlor*Rid extract solution and is stuck to the test surface where the solution is worked against the surface to extract the salts. The titration tube is inserted, and the results can be recorded.

Elcometer 134W Chloride Ion Test Kit For Water img

Elcometer 134W Chloride Ion Test Kit For Water

The Elcometer 134W Chloride Ion Test For Water is used to monitor recycled water (after its been applied) to establish effectiveness of salt removal. This test is ideal for testing the salt contamination in wash water and blast water. If the chloride levels in the wash or blast water are too high, this will promote premature corrosion, shortening the life of both the steel & concrete structures. This test can also be used when mixing concrete.

Elcometer 135C Bresle Test Patches img

Elcometer 135C Bresle Test Patches

The Elcometer 135C Bresle Test Patches determine the level of soluble salts on uncoated surfaces using the patch method in accordance with ISO 8502-6. They are easy to peel off after test and leave no foam on the substrate making them ideal for use in the field. The new Elcometer 135C Bresle Test Patches have a thicker foam surround compared to traditional patches, allowing easier insertion of the syringe. The test patches also use a high quality adhesive, ensuring a water tight seal during test.
