SuperPIG (Paint Inspection Gauge) III Paint Thickness Gauge


Standards: DIN 50986, ISO 2808

The TQC SP1100 SuperPIG is a destructive paint thickness gauge, a precision tool for coatings inspection and film thickness measurement on single or multiple coats. The Paint Inspection Gauge (PIG) can be used on virtually all substrates, including wood, plastics, metals etc. It also observes and measures substrate and paint defects by applying a small incision in the layer of paint, using an integrated microscope reticle for coatings inspection.

The PIG coating thickness gauge is a very stable instrument, and it's integrated microscope has excellent focus. The microscope is provided with a double scale (mm and inch) which allows you to calculate in micrometers and mils. A rubber end cap on the microscope reduces ambient light so that when observing through the microscope you will have a better focus upon the specimen.

Use

top
  • Mark the inspecting surface with a black line of approximately 20mm.
  • Place the SuperPIG with its cutter behind the line and pull (without putting pressure on the gauge) the SuperPIG across it, just cutting through the coating.
  • Tilt the SuperPIG and place the illuminated area at the intersection of the cut with the black line.
  • Look through the microscope and turn the knob to focus on the inspection area.
  • Read the graduation-scale and multiply the division with the D factor engraved on the SuperPIG, depending on the µm or mil scale.

Special Care

top
  • Though robust in design, this instrument is precision-machined. Never drop it or knock it over
  • Always clean the instrument after use
  • Clean the isntrument using a soft dry cloth. Never clean the instrument by any mechanical means such as a wire brush or abrasive paper. This may cause, just like the use of agressive cleaning agents, permanent damage.
  • Always keep the instrument in its case when not in use.
