GalvanoTest: Coulometric coating thickness measurement gauge

The anodic dissolution method, also known as the coulometric method, functions similarly to the electroplating process: an electrolyte separates individual metal coatings from the substrate with the help of an electric current. By measuring the current and time, the GalvanoTest determines the thickness of the separated coating.

The GalvanoTest coating thickness measurement gauge is available in two variants:

  • GalvanoTest 2000: the electrolyte is circulated by a pulsator nozzle.
  • GalvanoTest 3000: large electrolyte volumes circulated by a circulation pump enable quick serial measurements. Suitable for use on very small parts and for the measurement of gold layers.

  • Varnish, synthetic materials, glass, enamel and other coatings on wood, synthetic materials, glass, metal and ceramic
