OG202 Tooke Paint Inspection Gauge II

OG202 Tooke Paint Inspection Gauge II

Description
Price: $ 695.00 up to $ 770.00
Tooke Paint Inspection Gage II
The original OG202 Tooke Gage / Gauge is made of machined aluminum.
In accordance with ASTM D4138

The OG202 Tooke Paint Inspection Gage/Gauge II is a precision tool for inspection and thickness measurement (in accordance with ASTM D4138) of single or multiple coats on any substrate, and for microscopic observation and measurement of substrate and film defects. The OG202 Tooke Paint Inspection Gage/Gauge II  uses an illuminated 50-power microscope with measuring reticle, and mounts tungsten carbide cutting tips for precise incision of the work surface.

Direct measurement of total coating thickness and thickness of individual coats of paint is a unique capability of the Tooke Paint Inspection Gage/Gauge. Thus, in addition to routine use, the OG202 Tooke Paint Inspection Gage/Gauge II  often serves as a “referee” instrument to calibrate indirect or non-destructive thickness measuring instruments.

Other uses include assessment of substrate conditions and coating adhesion, and observation of microscopic cracking, tendency for brittleness, cratering, or other microscopic film symptoms.

Operation
line

A special cutting tool (the “cutting tip”) that is integral to the gage is used to incise a small precision V-groove through the paint film and into the substrate.

Incising the V-groove with the OG202
using the OG202

Micro-Metrics Company cutting tips are precision-ground by hand from tungsten-carbide blanks in a multiple-step process that includes a final inspection by microscope for accuracy of angle, fineness of finish, and lack of chips and damage

1×, 2×, and 10× cutting tips

1x cutting tip 2x cutting tip 10x cutting tip

The gage in standard configuration mounts 1×, 2×, and 10× cutting tips. An optional 5× tip is available. The gage can also be ordered with three tips of the same size or in any desired configuration (including a single cutting tip with two non-functioning blanks).

Principle

The incised V-groove is observed vertically through an illuminated microscope bearing a measuring reticle (scale). An “English” (Imperial) version, with the reticle marked in mils, and a metric version, with the reticle marked in microns, are available.

Special Applications
line

The OG202 Tooke Paint Inspection Gage/Gauge has been used to assess sandblast cleaning work, to measure plating and paint thickness on ceramics, metal, wood, and concrete, and even to measure protective backing thickness on mirrors. It is virtually the only tool for measuring paint on plastics. The quality of the incision in the film discloses much about the characteristics of the brittleness and adhesion of the material .
