Elcometer 456 Coating Thickness Gauge

The Elcometer 456 Coating Thickness Gauge sets new standards; providing reliable and accurate coating thickness measurements; helping you to become more efficient.


This Dry Film Thickness gauge is available in 3 different models:

  1. Entry level Elcometer 456 -  Model B
  2. Mid-range Elcometer 456 -  Model S
  3. Top range Elcometer 456 -  Model T

Integral paint thickness gauges and tester are suitable single operated system with help of internal probes Bigfoot that gives you accurate data in dry film thickness measurement by DFT meter. Allowing for consistent, repeatable and accurate dry film thickness results. Separate coating thickness gauge models, with their wide range of probes, provide even greater dry film thickness measurement flexibility. Compatible with ElcoMaster® software and ElcoMaster® Mobile App, individual coating thickness measurements can be transferred via USB or Bluetooth® to PC or a mobile device for analysis and instant report generation.


Do you know why Dry Film Thickness (DFT) measurement is important?

DFT meter & Paint Thickness tester/gauges are important instruments to measure during the application and inspection of protective coatings. Dry film thickness or coating thickness gauge are designed to perform their oriented function with applied optimize DFT ranges as preferred by manufactures. Findings of accurate thickness give you better product performance.
