We can use the paint thickness measuring instrument LS220B to identify whether the car has been repainted. Firstly, the data of the roof is used as a reference of the original paint thickness. If the paint thickness of the other positions is larger than the car roof, it means the other positions of the car may have been repainted.

In the evaluation of used car, the paint thickness measuring instrument is one of the essential equipment. It can measure the paint thickness on the car surface. As we all know, the car paint thickness can tell you a lot. It can determine whether a car has been repaired, repainted or made sheet metal. It can help users evaluate the overall condition of a used car, reveal the use of the car and determine the appropriate value through the data of the paint thickness measuring instrument and finally lead the negotiation. Before the paint thickness measuring instrument was widely used, many used car appraisers judged by experience, but now they all use the data tested by the paint thickness measuring instrument.

Since the paint thickness standards of different brands are different, most of the original car roof paint thickness is around 100um. However, there are also some German cars whose car roof paint thickness is around 200um.

1. LS220B Paint thickness measuring device

LS220B paint thickness measuring device can be used to measure the paint thickness on all kinds of automotive metal body, this paint measurement tool has the following advantages.

  1. Measurement can be completed in 0.5 seconds. 

  2. It will automatically identify the iron, aluminum, or non-metal substrate and switch the measurement mode.

  3. With Bluetooth data transmission function. After a successful connection with the mobile APP, the test data can be viewed and recorded on the APP, and the test report can be generated.

Next, let's test a Japanese car with the paint thickness measuring device LS220B to see the difference between the original paint and the spray paint:

From the comparison of the data measured by the paint thickness measuring device in the above two positions, it is very obvious. The paint thickness measuring device LS220B can accurately identify the specific location of the car body paint repair and how serious the accident was. Now we can see the paint thickness on car bonnet was 899μm, it's larger than the thickness on other positions, we can know a serious car accident may has happened with this car. Because when a serious car accident happened, the car must be repainted.

It is a efficient method by using the paint thickness measuring device to test the automotive paint thickness.
