TQC Sheen Film Thickness Gauge

This TQC Film Thickness Gauge is a high precision film and foil thickness gauge designed to offer accurate measurements quickly and easily.  


Dispatched within 2 days


Brought to you from TQC Sheen, our specialist paint testing brand, the TQC Sheen  Film Thickness Gauge is a reliable film and foil thickness gauge ideal for measuring so-called “replica tapes” like Testex®, used mainly to measure the surface profile. It offers high precision measurements in the 0 to 1000 micron range with a resolution of 1 micron and an accuracy of ± 5 micron.   

The large and clear display makes it easy to read the instrument under all conditions. Values can be displayed in either microns or inches. The gauge has a comfortable handle, for ease of use and to minimize the influence of the operator’s hand temperature on the precise measurements.   

Why measure film thickness?

Measuring film thickness and assessing the smoothness of a substrate can be essential in the QA of applied inks, paints and coatings. It can yield important information about adhesion and help to maintain finish quality and minimize material costs to improve the efficiency of application while ensuring compliance with contract specifications. It can also be used for testing the films applied in flexible packaging. Find out more about testing the thickness of packaging films 

Our film thickness gauge that meets industry standards

The TQC film thickness gauge operates completely according to ISO 8503-5, for the preparation of steel substrates before application of paints and related products. It also allows you to measure in compliance with ASTM D4417-21, the standard test method for field measurement of surface profile of blast cleaned steel.
