How to measure coating thickness? When and where do we use paint thickness meter? These questions will be answered in this article.

1.What is the coating thickness measurement?

Coating thickness measurement refers to the measurement of coating thickness on a particular substrate.Whether it is wet or dry,we can measure its thickness.However,  if the dry film is measured,the non-destructive measurement method must be used.

The substrate is typically an iron based (such as steel or iron) or a non-ferrous based (such as aluminum or copper). In some cases,the coating thickness must be measured on a non-metal substrate such as wood,glass or plastic.In these cases,an ultrasonic paint thickness meter is recommended.Because the traditional dry film paint thickness meter uses the principle of magnetic induction or eddy current principle.Most magnetic induction or eddy current paint thickness meters are dual-purpose.This means that the coating thickness on both magnetic and non-magnetic metals can be measured.This type of paint thickness meter typically provides a very wide measurement range.

2.Where is the paint thickness meter applied?

In the automotive industry,coating thickness measurements are often required.In automotive manufacturing and production,automotive manufacturers typically use paint thickness meters to determine whether enough paint has been sprayed on the surface of each component of the car. Car dealerships,auto repair shops and auto insurance claimants also used coating thickness gauges to verify the coating thickness of used cars to evaluate the value of the car.

In addition, paint thickness meters can be used to measure corrosion-resistant protective coatings on metal substrates.Therefore,the hand-held paint thickness meter is a valuable tool widely used in buildings,bridges,oil tankers,gas pipes.

3.Is it better to use integral or seperate paint thickness meter?

The probe of the paint thickness meter is usually inside or outside the instrument.The integrated probe of the paint thickness meter is ideal for quick measurements in the field. Paint thickness meters with externally connected probes are more suitable for measurement in narrow spaces. If you have any questions about the specific application of the paint thickness meter, Linshang technical engineer would be lovely to help.Just contact +8613510633052 or send an email to professional technician will be at your service.
