Portable coating thickness gauge

The Pocket-Surfix® gauge is a mobile measurement gauge providing fast, professional and precise coating thickness measurements of varnish, paint and electroplated coatings on iron/steel as well as on varnish, paint and anodic coatings on non-ferrous metals and on austenitic VA-steel.

The integrated probe has a hard-wearing carbide pole tip and therefore has almost unlimited durabilty. The plastic foot is equipped with a v-groove and ensures an upright positioning even on cylindrical or curvatured surfaces.

The Pocket Surfix® is available in 3 model variants. All model variants provide for easy and precise coating thickness measurements – the combined gauges FN on steel and non-ferrous metals, the F-types exclusive on steel and the N-types exclusive on non-ferrous metals.
