TQC PIG III Destructive Paint Inspection



PIG Destructive Paint Inspection Gauge

TQC SP1100 Super PIG is a destructive precision tool for inspection and thickness measurement on single or multiple coats on virtually all substrates, including wood, plastics, metals etc. Also observes and measures substrate and film defects. Applies a small incision in the layer of paint, and uses an integrated microscope reticle.The SP1100 is a very stable instrument, also the integrated microscope has an excellent focus. The microscope is provided with a double scale (mm and inch) which allows you to calculate to micrometers and mils. Reduce of ambient light because of a rubber end cap on the microscope so when observing through the microscope you will have a better focus upon the specimen.
