LS235 car paint meter is suitable for detecting the thickness of automotive paint. The body shell is generally made of metal materials such as iron or aluminum and non-metallic materials such as carbon fiber and plastic. Ordinary automotive paint meter can only detect iron and aluminum and non-metallic materials. However, LS235 can not only distinguish the car paint thickness on iron or aluminum substrates, but also discover the non-metal shell, intelligently identify the metallic putty and iron galvanized. It indicates the substrates by tri-color backlight.  When the metallic putty is recognized, red light is on.  When the iron galvanized car body is recognized, green light is on. In other measuring pattern, white light is on.

Fast response and short measuring interval

The response speed is fast and it only takes 0.5 seconds to complete a measurement.

Ruby probe ensures extravagant quality

The wear-resistant ruby probe reduces the inspection error caused by abrasion and can extend the service life of the automotive paint meter

Advanced digital probe guarantees accuracy of measurement

Using advanced digital probe technology, the digital signal processing is done directly on the probe that is not susceptible to interference and provides excellent test accuracy to ensure good repeatability during the entire measurement process and maintain data stability.
