Using ultrasonic coating thickness gages
In today’s coating industry, companies have diversified into multiple finishing markets that demand multiple types of finishing technologies, liquid and powder. Today’s finisher also needs to know how to apply coatings to many substrates, including plastics and woods, especially medium-density fiberboard (MDF). Knowing how to measure film thickness to meet customer specifications and to save material use is a key to quality finishing. This article explains advances in ultrasonic coating thickness measurement for substrates you may be coating now, such as MDF, or you may be coating in the future.
Coating thickness gages that use ultrasonic measurement techniques are becoming increasingly popular. They support or replace destructive methods for measuring the thickness of coatings over wood and wood products.
