Get Ready to Measure with the PosiTector 6000

The PosiTector 6000 is a Coating Thickness Gage for All Metal Substrates

What is the PosiTector 6000?

The PosiTector 6000 is an advanced coating inspection tool used to measure a wide range of important characteristics. It’s capable of testing for everything from profile depth and dry film thickness to adhesion strength, humidity levels and more. This comprehensive device also features ultrasonic measurement technology that allows users to identify areas where rust or other forms of corrosion may have impacted the substrate beneath the coating. On top of that, it can detect small flaws in even the toughest coatings thanks to its high-resolution imaging capabilities. In short, the PosiTector 6000 is an invaluable tool when it comes to accurately assessing the condition of complex surfaces.

PosiTector 6000 Gage Benefits

Rugged and Fully Electronic

The PosiTector 6000 is a rugged and fully electronic coating thickness gage that can be used on both ferrous and non-ferrous metals. With its magnetic and eddy current principles, this gage allows for accurate and fast measurements of paint thickness. No calibration adjustment is required for most applications!

Weatherproof, Dustproof, and Water-Resistant

The PosiTector 6000 is designed to excel in even the toughest of conditions. Its IP65-rated enclosure makes it weatherproof, dustproof, and water-resistant, so you can be sure it will last through any job. The wear resistant ruby probe tip also ensures calibration accuracy for a long time.

Connectivity Options

The PosiTector 6000 also features USB, WiFi, and Bluetooth connectivity to PosiSoft PC, Mac, and Smartphone software. Plus, when you purchase one of our gages, you will receive a Certificate of Calibration showing traceability to NIST or PTB (Long Form). So you can be sure that your gage is accurate and reliable.
