DeFelsko PosiTest DFT Coating Thickness Gauge

New PosiTest DFT Coating Thickness Gauge. PosiTest DFT is an economical and user-friendly electronic coating thickness gauge for measuring dry film thicknesses on all metal substrates. PosiTest DFT retains the uncompromising quality of DeFelsko coating thickness and inspection instruments.


  • Faster measurement speed: 60-plus readings per minute
  • High-contrast colour LCD display
  • Auto-rotating display with lock to prevent unintended rotation
  • On-screen averaging for up to 99 readings
  • Simple, icon-based menu
  • Adjustable display brightness for optimal visibilty in any environment


Ideal for Powder Coaters, Paint Applicators, Coating Inspectors, Painting Contractors, Automotive Refinishers and Detailers, PosiTest DFT  is available in TWO MODELS:


PosiTest DFT Ferrous for measuring non-magnetic coatings on steel or other magnetic metals.

PosiTest DFT Combo for measuring non-magnetic coatings on steel, and non-conductive coatings on non-ferrous substrates including aluminum, and stainless steel. PosiTest DFT automatically recognizes the substrate, and measures the coating thickness.


PosiTest DFT is the ideal Automotive Paint Gauge. Small and easy to use, PosiTest DFT measures paint thickness on new or pre-owned automobiles, making it perfect for automotive refinishers and detailers, and to identify collision damage or refinish work on used vehicles.


The new PosiTest DFT has on-screen averaging of up to 99 readings, a 1-point calibration to adjust to a shim of known thickness over rough or curved surfaces, and automatic rotation of display (with a lock to prevent undesired rotation), the PosiTest DFT is also ideal for welding or blast shops, and for powder coaters.


PosiTest DFT conforms to: ISO 2178/2360/2808, ISO 19840, ASTM B244/B499/D7091/ E376/G12, BS3900-C5, SSPC-PA2 and others.

PosiTest DFT comes in a hard, glasses-style protective case that fits in most shirt pockets, a handy wrist-strap, and is supplied with DeFelsko's long-form certificate of calibration traceable to PTB. An optional genuine leather pouch with belt clip is available.
