How to Measure Paint Thickness of Used Car
The paint thickness measurement of used cars is skillful. First, measure the thickness of the roof by a paint thickness meter, because the paint on the car roof is usually made of original paint. Then use the paint thickness meter to measure the thickness of other parts of the car to accurately know whether the car has been repaired.
First of all, we need to use the paint thickness meter to detect the thickness of the car , because the car roof is the most difficult to be destroyed. After the accident, the parts that need to be repaired usually appear at the front and the rear of the car, or the body. side. Therefore, we only need to use the Linshang LS220 paint thickness meter to detect the thickness of the car roof, and basically determine the thickness of the original paint of the car.
Now we have measured the thickness of the paint thickness on the roof of this car to be 103μm. It is preliminarily judged that the paint film thickness of this car is about 103μm.
Then we use a paint thickness meter to detect other parts of the car. We got four data by testing the car bonnet, the sides of the door and the rear of the car. The lacquer thickness of the car bonnet is 106 μm, the paint thickness of the left door is 110 μm, the paint thickness of the right door is 418 μm, and the paint thickness of the rear is 110 μm (tail).
From the five data we tested, it is easy to see that only the paint thickness on the right door is thicker and far larger than the thickness of the paint on the car roof. Therefore, it can be judged that the paint on the right side of the car is not the original paint. But has been repaired. The cause of repair is generally scratched or impacted.
With a paint thickness meter, we can test the paint thickness of each part of a car. And through the data obtained by the test to judge the repair situation of a car. When buying a used car, we can use the data of this instrument to reasonably judge whether the used cars has been repaired. Even those who have no experience in buying used cars can correctly identify the accident cars.
