Surface Profile

The proper and effective preparation of a surface prior to coating is essential. Making sure that the correct roughness or profile has been generated is essential. If the profile is too low, the adhesion of the coating to the surface will be reduced. Too high and there is the danger that the profile peaks will remain uncoated allowing rust spots to occur.

Elcometer 123 Surface Profile Gauge


This is an easy to use gauge that measures the peak-to-valley height of a blast cleaned surface. The average of a series of measurements provides an indication of the surface roughness and allows the surfaces to be compared as blasting proceeds. Simple and low cost Metric and Imperial versions
Can be used in accordance with: ASTM D 4417-B SABS 772

Elcometer 223 Digital Surface Profile Gauge


The Elcometer 223 is a battery operated Digital Surface Profile Gauge which measures the peak-to-valley height of a surface in a similar way to the Elcometer 123 analogue equivalent, but with the added benefit of a direct RS232 output. RS232 output - for direct transfer of readings to a PC, datalogger, printer etc providing a permanent record of your test results no memory in gauge Metric and Imperial switchable Increased resolution
Can be used in accordance with: ASTM D 4417-B SABS 772

Elcometer 101 Scale 45 Roughness Gauge
Whereas comparators allow the estimation of surface roughness by both touch and sight, the Elcometer 101 estimates the roughness of iron and steel surfaces. Its scale indicates the suitability of the surface for paints, metal coatings and hard metal coatings. No batteries required Simple and easy to use

Scale (Divisions: 0-10)

Blue Band: Indicates surface is generally accepted as suitable for painting Yellow Band: Indicates the surface is suitable for sprayed metal coatings Red Band: Indicates the surface is suitable for hard sprayed metal coatings

Elcometer 122 Testex Replica Tape


Whereas comparators allow the estimation of surface roughness by both touch and sight, the Elcometer 122 Testex Tape allows the user to measure the peak-to-valley height of the profile and record it. Elcometer 122 Testex Tape consists of foam with a non-compressible backing. The foam side is rubbed into the surface providing a permanent mould of the profile. The Elcometer 124 Thickness Gauge is then used to measure the peak-to-valley height of the profile formed in Elcometer 122 Testex Tape. The Testex Tape range is available in four profile ranges. It is important that the tape grade chosen is reflective of the profile under measurement.

Can be used in accordance with: ASTM D 4417-C ISO DIS 8503-3
