Calotest Compact (CATc)

CAT2c-microscope-300x220

Calotest is designed to quickly characterize coating thickness. The CATc is widely used for analyzing coatings with thicknesses between 0.1 μm and 50 μm. The simple ball-cratering method offers a fast and accurate means of checking the thickness of any kind of coating, whether a single or multilayered stack. Typical examples include CVD, PVD, plasma spray coatings, anodic oxidation layers, chemical and galvanic deposits, polymers, paints and lacquers.

Calotest Industrial (CATi)

The Industrial Calotest measures the thickness of coatings in a typical time of 2 to 5 minutes. In this industrial version the motor is fixed on a hydraulic arm, allowing the user to target samples of unlimited size. It is the ideal instrument for a quick and precise determination of coating thickness on common industrial coated components.
