The paint thickness tester is also called paint film thickness gauge, coating thickness gauge. The eddy current method and the magnetic method are used for detecting different substrates.

In real life, for example, the corrosion of the steel structure of a passenger truck is caused by the unqualified paint thickness, so people want to have a variety of convenient and flexible paint thickness testers to check whether the coating thickness meets the standard. The paint thickness tester can be used not only in the laboratory, but also in large numbers on the engineering site.

In the field of electroplating, anti-corrosion, aerospace, chemical, shipbuilding, automotive, light industry, and commodity inspection. With different probes, it can be applied to various occasions. At present, there are many kinds of coating thickness gauges produced in China. The commonly used ones are magnetic paint thickness tester and eddy current paint thickness tester.

The paint thickness tester is mainly used to measure the wall thickness of hulls, oil and gas pipelines, high-pressure vessels, boilers, etc., as well as the thickness of various plates. Metal substrate represented by steel.

LS220 is a dual-purpose magnetic and eddy current paint thickness tester. It is suitable for the measurement of non-magnetic coatings such as paint, varnish, enamel, chromium and galvanizing on ferromagnetic metal substrates such as iron and steel. Measurement of non-conductive coatings such as paint, anodized layers or ceramics on non-magnetic metal substrates such as copper. This car paint thickness tester is especially suitable for the detection of car paint coating thickness.

LS220 paint thickness tester is a coating measuring instrument with a host and probe integrated, very portable. The paint thickness tester can complete a measurement in only 0.5 seconds without calibration. And the operation is extremely simple.

LS220 paint thickness tester meets the following standard:

  • DIN EN ISO 2808 Determination of film thickness of paints and varnishes.

  • GB / T 4956-2003 Thickness measurement of non-magnetic coating on magnetic substrate-magnetic method.

  • GB / T 4957-2003 Thickness measurement of non-conductive coating on non-magnetic base metal-eddy current method.

LS220 paint thickness tester product features:

  1. The ruby probe is used, which has strong corrosion resistance and wear resistance, ensuring long-term effective use.

  2. The instrument does not need to be calibrated, only zero adjustment is required. The measurement can be started after the zero adjustment is completed. 

  3. With temperature compensation function and digital function of analog signal end, to ensure the stability of the sensor signal.

  4. It has three measurement modes: iron-based measurement (Fe), non-iron-based measurement (NFe) and automatic identification (Fe / NFe).

  5. The dual-purpose probe automatically recognizes the measurement substrate and can be converted quickly and automatically.

  6. It can measure the non-magnetic coating layer thickness on the magnetic metal substrate such as steel and the non-conductive coating layer thickness on the non-magnetic metal substrate such as copper and aluminum.
