Product Description & Reviews
This professional paint thickness meter is the ultimate tool to measure the thickness of paints and coatings up to 50 mil on metals. It is a combination gauge with two sensors, one for magnetic metals, for example iron and steel, and one for non-magnetic metals such as aluminum. The gauge will automatically switch to the right sensor. This unit has a color LCD display, memory for 100 measurements, and also will give you a statistical analysis of a measurement series. It will display the mean (average) thickness, the minimum reading and the maximum reading. It also calculates the standard deviation.
This is a great tool for car dealerships, used car buyers, appraisers, insurance agents, body shops and collision centers. Or if you go to shop for a car as a private buyer. It will allow you to measure the paint thickness and to identify parts of the car that might have been repaired and repainted. This might indicate previous, unreported accidents which impact the value of a used car, minivan or truck. Since it can measure both steel and aluminum it is suitable for new trucks such as the Ford F150, which has many body parts made from aluminum. This paint thickness meter is also used by car detailers to make sure they do not take too much paint when refinishing a car. It also allows them to document and detect previous damage and repairs. Collision centers and body shops use paint meters to detect previous repairs and to document that they painted the car correctly.
