BITEC is the Distributor of Elcometer Products in UAE.

Elcometer are leaders in coating & concrete inspection equipment rebars & metal detection. Elcometer products measure coating thickness, climate, porosity & adhesion as well as a wide range of physical test parameters required for the formulation of coatings. With a range of products specifically developed to meet the needs of the coatings industry, Elcometer is well positioned to provide you with the solution to your inspection requirements - whatever and wherever they might be.

Elcometer are leaders in coating & concrete inspection equipment, rebar & metal detection. Our products measure coating thickness, climate, porosity & adhesion as well as a wide range of physical test parameters required for the formulation of coatings.

Material Thickness
Ultrasonic gauges are used to accurately determine material thickness.

Converting the time of flight of a pulse of sound energy, sent into and reflecting back from a defect or opposite surface, ultrasonic thickness gauges are ideal for measuring and detecting pits and flaws in a material when only one side is accessible.


Surface Profiles

Surface profile gauges are available in either analogue or digital versions. Once ‘zeroed’, the profile measurement is taken and the gauge records the value from the top of the peak to the bottom of the valley. Digital gauges minimise interpretation errors in the readings and are fast and accurate. Memory versions allow readings to be stored and later downloaded to a PC via Bluetooth® wireless technology.


Wet Film & Powder Thickness

Measuring coatings before they have cured can predict the final film thickness.

Applying too much coating not only wastes time and materials, it can also affect the performance and finish of the product. Too much wet film can cause the coating to crack as it cures; too little coating increases the risk that the substrate will not be sufficiently protected, leading to rust spots.

In the powder coating industry, ensuring the end product has the correct levels of adhesion and appearance is dependent on the thickness of the powder prior to the curing process. Too much powder can lead to poor adhesion, too little can lead to a discolouration and loss in gloss of the coating.


Dry Film Thickness

Dry Film Thickness is a critical measurement in the coating application process. It provides vital information as to the expected life of the substrate, the product’s fitness for purpose, its appearance and ensures compliance with a host of International Standards.

Elcometer’s latest innovation, the new Elcometer 456 sets new standards in coating thickness measurements. Available in a range of models for measuring dry film thickness on ferrous & non-ferrous metal substrates, the new Elcometer 456 is even more powerful, rugged and easier to use than ever before.


Adhesion Testers

Adhesion testers verify that both surface preparation and coating application are within specification.

From the largest man-made structures to the smallest household appliances, most manufactured products have a protective or cosmetic coating. Premature failure of this coating can, at the very least, result in additional costs of rework


Pinhole & Porosity

Premature corrosion of a substrate is usually due to a coating failure. A major cause is the presence of flaws in the finished coating.


Inspection Kits

Elcometer offers one of the widest ranges of inspection equipment available. Our products are used across numerous industry sectors. In all cases, there is always a need to undertake a number of specific inspections during quality control assessments - as one parameter can affect another. For example, the thickness of an applied coating can affect properties such as adhesion, gloss, colour and porosity.

Elcometer has put together a series of industry and product specific inspection kits - combining a number of gauges from our range. Each kit is supplied in a convenient sturdy plastic carry case, ideal for transporting to and from the inspection site.
