Paint Coating Thickness Gauge & Meter

Positector200 on concreteConcrete coatings thickness measurements are commonplace in industrial and commercial. Specifications usually call for a minimum coating or paint thickness. This ultrasonic device provides a non-destructive means for determining coating thickness insitu. It is also useful for checking coating thicknesses on wood, plastic.


The PosiTector 200 probe emits a high frequency sound pulse that travels into the coating via a coupling gel and reflects from ANY surface that is different in density.

Positector200 TheoryThe readings of a Coating thickness meter are obtained by measuring the time taken for the ultrasonic signal to propagate from the probe to the coating/substrate interface and back.

How to select your probes

Choose your substrate:Positector200 Probe Selection

  • Type B (Polymer coatings on wood, plastic, etc.)
  • Type C (Coatings on concrete, fiberglass, etc.)
  • Type D (Thick, soft coatings such as polyuria, asphaltic neoprene, very thick polymers, etc.)

Standard models measure the total thickness of a coating system.

Positector200 Probe DimensionsAdvanced models measure total thickness of a coating system or up to 3 individual layer thicknesses in a multi-layer system. Also features graphic readout for detailed analysis of the coating system.

The selection of probe determines both the maximum thickness that can be measured, and the precision of the measurement.

Type C is for standard coating measurement on concrete, and type D is better for thicker coatings. Type B is more commonly used for testing over wood but does have a finer resolution when measuring multiple layers within a coating.
