The quality and performance of pavement markings has increased in recent years, thanks to better paint and thermoplastic and higher performing glass beads. In addition, new marking types have improved in particular the performance during wet conditions at nighttime by allowing better run-off of water.
In parallel, costs of materials have increased having made road owners interested in knowing the actual amount of paint or thermoplastic applied. Measurement of the thickness of the markings is used for verification.
DELTA’s marking thickness gauge is a digital device for measuring the thickness of pavement markings dry, after application. It is very easy to operate and comes in a sturdy construction and ergonomic design. The gauge can measure markings within the measurement range of -12.7mm to 12.7mm / -0.5in to 0.5in. The digital display provides reliable measurement results in seconds.
