Elcometer 415 FNF hire kit

Contact Instrument Solutions


The Elcometer 415 industrial paint and powder thickness gauge provides simple, fast and accurate coating thickness measurements on smooth and thin industrial paint and powder coatings making it ideal for these markets. Fast, accurate and very user friendly, the instrument is available in two different models: Model B and the T which provides the user with Bluetooth communication compatible with ElcoMaster software and the ElcoMaster Mobile App. Automatically switches between ferrous and non-ferrous substrates when using FNF models. Also includes batteries, steel & aluminium check pieces (probe specific), foil set, wrist strap, impact resistant carry case, screen protector (model T), manufacturers standard calibration test certificate, operating instructions, USB cable (model T) and ElcoMaster CD (model T).


  • Incredibly fast (60+ readings per minute), reduces inspection times, increasing productivity
  • Automatically switches between ferrous and non-ferrous substrates when using FNF models
  • Measures cured paint & powder coatings up to 1000 μm (40 mils)
  • 1-point and 2-point calibration ensures accuracy on smooth and thin coated substrates
  • Easy to use, ergonomic design provides maximum comfort for continuous use
  • Large easy to read values in microns or mils
  • Auto rotating large colour display provides clear visibility whatever the angle of measurement
  • Scratch, solvent and powder resistant display
  • Rugged and resistant to powder coatings ingress equivalent to IP64
  • Transfer live data via USB or Bluetooth (Model T only) to ElcoMaster software and ElcoMaster Mobile App for instant report generation
