Available in two models, the Elcometer 121 is a measuring gauge of monolayer and multilayer coatings on virtually all types of substrates, including wood, plastic and metal. Both models are supplied with a microscope (magnification 50 times) informed and integrated graticule Top model features an integrated rotary portecouteaux can receive three knives and a grid of standard comb.

  • Light and compact:
    Easy to use in tight spaces.
  • Solid and built to last:
    Anodized aluminum casing.
  • By bright white LED lighting:
    To better see through the integrated microscope.
  • Versatile:
    Used as a control gauge coatings or for the adhesion test by † grid comb.
Thickness measurement gauges revêtement- destructive measurement
Destructive thickness measurement is often the only guaranteed method available to test certain coatings on substrates such as some paints on concrete, wood, plaster, plastic, etc.

When to measure the thickness of a single layer in a multilayer system, the most accurate method available is the Paint Inspection Gauge In brief: (PIG).


In short
Destructive measurement of multilayer coatings.
Testing hardness and adhesion by the technique of grid with a single gauge †
