Ultrasonic Coating Thickness Gauge

PosiTector 200Concrete coatings thickness measurements are commonplace in industrial and commercial, especially measuring the applied thickness of waterproofing membrane. Specifications usually call for a minimum coating or paint thickness.

The Positector 200, also known as an Ultrasonic Film Thickness Gauge provides a non-destructive means for determining coating thickness insitu on concrete, wood or plastic surfaces. 

Theory

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.

The readings of a ultrasonic film thickness gauge are obtained by measuring the time taken for the siund pulse to propagate from the probe to the coating/substrate interface and back.

How to select your probes

Choose your substrate:

  • 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.
