Check Powder Thickness with Powder Comb before curing to help ensure correctly cured film thickness the first time through. Avoid stripping and re-coating which can cause problems with adhesion and coating integrity.

Versatility

  • Ideal for set-up and quality control
  • Works on a variety of part sizes, shapes and substrates such as metal, plastic, wood, glass and more
  • Easy to carry; convenient shirt pocketsize
  • Available in microns (metric) and mils (imperial)


Quality

  • Broad stand-offs on both sides of teeth help keep gauge perpendicular to surface when measuring
  • Rugged aluminum construction for long gauge life and static control
  • Precision gauge; manufactured to a tolerance of ± 5 microns or ± 0.0002 inch
  • Protective leather pouch included with each gauge


Simple Operation

  1. Push the Powder Comb perpendicularly into the dry powder so that the stand-offs (end tabs) on both side if the teeth rest firmly on the substrate.
  2. Drag the Powder Comb along the surface of the coated part for at least 1 cm.
  3. Remove the Powder Comb from the surface and examine the marks left in the powder. The powder thickness is between the highest numbered tooth which made a mark and has powder clinging to it, and the next highest tooth which left no mark and has no powder clinging to it.

Example: The 3 & 6 mil teeth both make lines and have powder clinging to them, but the 9 mil tooth does not. The uncured powder thickness is determined to be between 6 & 9 mils. (Table below illustrates further).

Note: Most powders cure to approximately 50% of their dry thickness. Marks left by the gauge may affect the characteristics of the cured film.
