Physical Properties


Do you always have the right tool at hand to measure film thickness?


Film Thickness and Dew Point in one tool in accordance with SSPC-PA2: byko-test


The 4-in-1 byko-test measures film thickness on Fe/NFe substrates plus humidity, temperature and dew point with high precision. Ideal for coaters of exterior structures, like marine or protective applications.

Temperature data logger with easy Pass / Fail data analysis: temp-gard basic 


YOUR faithful companion to control industrial ovens


An efficiently running curing oven saves time, money and guarantees your color, gloss and physical properties are within specification. BYK-Gardner’s temp-gard basic is the ideal solution to control industrial curing ovens used for wet or powder coatings. The robust thermal barrier can withstand up to 2.5 hours at 250 °C and the temp-chart software will show you with easy Pass / Fail and Cure Index, what happens during paint curing. Your oven is no longer a black box, it is getting transparent and your paint quality as well as energy cost will be under control.

Special offer valid until June 30, 2021:
​​​​​​​Get 1 cooling elements free of charge – 284 € ($ 326) savings. The 2nd cooling element allows more frequent oven runs – especially of benefit when you need to check the oven performance at a customer site or after new settings.

How to check environmental conditions prior to painting


We provide a field testing kit for protective coatings in accordance with SSPC PA-2:

  • Dry Film Thickness Measurement
