Coated Abrasives Moisture

MoistTech Can Monitor Moisture with Ease

Whether you need manual or automatic moisture control, you need to find a way to control coated abrasives moisture levels to keep your processes running. MoistTech’s IR 3000-C Moisture Sensor can measure moisture levels and solvent based coatings and coat weight thickness throughout the manufacturing process.

Having the correct moisture level in your coated abrasives during the manufacturing process is incredibly important. If they are off, either too high or too low, the waste of raw materials goes up and productivity is decreased.

Optimize Quality Control

 The IR 3000 Moisture Sensor puts you into the driver’s seat when it comes to moisture levels. Real-time measurements are made and transmitted to you automatically or manually, whichever you would prefer. This allows for immediate adjustments in moisture levels when it counts most. 

By reducing your wasted raw material costs, you can decrease your overall product costs. Reduced drying times can provide you with significant savings in your monthly utilities. Drying and heating of products can account for a large percentage of overhead costs.

Keeping your employees working instead of re-working will help you increase employee production as well. Not to mention, with less downtime, you will find your employee’s morale will increase as well.


Unsurpassed in performance, our sensors can accurately measure  moisture within tenths of a percent of most applications


MoistTech sensors withstand the test of time and are low to zero maintenance


Rely on MoistTech’s NIR moisture sensors to never drift or need re-calibration


A moisture measurement system is essential for the production process and in some cases will pay for itself in less than 30 days
