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, the screen turns red. When the iron galvanized car body is recognized, the screen turns green. In other measuring pattern, the screen is white.

  1. 1. The difference between LS220 and LS235 car paint meter?

    LS220 and LS235 car paint meter both can identify metallic puttty and iron galvanized car body. When discovered metallic putty, the screen of LS235 will turn red while turns green recognizing iron galvanized car body.

  2. 2. How to judge whether the car has been repainted or not?

    At present, the paint thickness of different brands of cars on the market is not exactly the same. Therefore, when measuring the paint film thickness of a certain car, you can first measure the paint thickness on the car roof, because car roof is rarely affected by external forces and scratches, dents or deformation, it is more likely to retain the original paint thickness. To test the specfic position of the car, you can take the upper, lower, left, right, and middle five points to test and calculate the average value of the five data. If the value of one point is greater than the average value of more than 30μm, this position may have been repainted.

  3. 3. Under what circumstances we need to make zero adjustment?

    When the body material of the car under test changes; the instrument has not been used for a long time; when the ambient temperature changed significantly; after the battery is replaced; when it can not recognize ferrou putty or iron galvanized cae body.

  4. 4. Can I customize the LOGO and shell of the car paint meter?

    Yes, but there is a minimum order quantity. The minimum order quantity for customized LOGO: 100pcs; the minimum order quantity for customized instrument shell: 500pcs. If you want to know more about the Linshang coating thickness gauge, Please click “Paint Thickness Gauge Selection and FAQ”.
