Laboratory device used to determine the upper limit of pigment size of coatings or semi-finished coatings. Grindometers consist of a steel block with a cavity of varying depth starting from zero depth. The deep end of the cavity is filled with the pigmented liquid and the liquid is scraped towards the shallow end with the help of a knife. Depth of cavity at the point where particles are visible is noted as the fineness of grind.
