Powder Checker Comb

The Powder Checker Comb simple, easy-to-use powder thickness gauge measures the thickness of applied dry coating powder …before it’s been cured!

Powder Checker Comb

Check Powder thickness with the Powder Checker Comb before curing to help insure correct cured film thickness the first time through the line. 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 pocket size
  • Available in microns (metric) or mils (inch)

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 + 5 microns or + 0.0002 inch
  • Protective leather pouch included with each gauge

Simple Operation

  • Push the Powder Checker perpendicularly into the dry powder so that the two stand-offs (end tabs) on both sides
    of the teeth rest firmly on the substrate.
  • Drag the Powder Checker Comb along the surface of the coated part for at least 1 centimeter
  • Remove the Powder Checker 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 75 and 150 micron teeth both make lines and have powder clinging to them but the 225 mil tooth does
not. The uncured powder thickness is determined to be between 150 and 225 microns. (see above image)

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