Film Weight Gauge
Thin film layers and coatings are applied to various products in diverse industries such as thin film manufacturing, solar energy, optical films, consumer packaging and metal packaging to achieve critical functional characteristics. Coatings improve surface properties of the substrate such as appearance, adhesion, corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and scratch resistance. In other applications, in particular in printing processes and semiconductor device fabrication, the coating forms an essential part of the finished product.
While traditional measurement tools can be effective for total package thickness or certain coat weights if properly maintained and calibrated, SpecMetrix systems can deliver real-time film and coating thickness results on single or dual layers immediately following coating application. With its exclusive ruggedized optical interference technologies, SpecMetrix tools are non-contact, non-hazardous and flexible enough to be used in R&D, QA, laboratory and in-process applications.
With their unprecedented ability to precisely measure thin clear coatings applied to substrates of any color, to include UV hardcoats and adhesives, SpecMetrix systems have become the coating and thin film measurement systems of choice for leaders within the specialty films, solar control window films, electronics films, packaging film and solar industry markets.
If more accurate process control would benefit your manufacturing production, then our coating thickness gauges and wet film thickness gauges will give you the needed precision to reduce costs and increase profitability.
