Paint Inspection Gauge (P.I.G)

      BGD 548 is a paint inspection gauge which is suitable for use wherever conventional electro-magnetic measuring techniques are ineffective, namely for coatings on wood, concrete, plastics and other non-metallic substrates.

Testing with the BGD 548 is based on the standardized wedge cut procedure: The coating is cut through at a defined angle in such a way that the cut penetrates the substrate. The layer thickness (s) is calculated on the basis of the slope projection (b) of the cut face, determined using a measuring microscope, and the cutting angle (α),Similarly, the individual layer thickness of multilayer systems can be ascertained.

The BGD 548 consists of a black painted aluminium block which accommodates the following functional elements:

 Exchangeable carbide tip with precision-ground angular cutting blade (come with 4 cutters)

No.1 Cutter:   Measuring range: 20-2,800μmFactor: 20 μm

No.2 Cutter:   Measuring range: 10-1,400μmFactor: 10 μm

No.3 Cutter:   Measuring range: 5-700μmFactor: 5 μm

No.4 Cutter:   Measuring range: 2-2,80μmFactor: 2μm

 Measuring microscope with a magnification of 30 and a reticle(2.8mm with 1/140 division), which is also suitable for inspection tasks.

 With two wheels design let cutting working is more stable and uniform.

 Battery compartment for 1.5 V battery block.

 Combination of LED and fibre-optic light guide for optimum specimen illumination at low current consumption.

It complies with ISO 2808-6B,ASTM D 4138,AS 1580 Meth 408.1
