Coating thickness meters play a very important role. Measuring coating thickness is essential for quality control, material testing, paint inspection, workshop operations, industrial painting, etc. When people buy a coating thickness meter, they usually choose the appropriate coating thickness meter according to the type of coating they need to measure. However, with the wide range of coating thickness meters on the market, making the best choice is often not an easy task.
       When choosing the best coating thickness meter, customers often don't know how to choose the instrument. Fortunately, there are simple ways to help you narrow your selections quickly. By considering the following four aspects, you can help customers quickly choose a coating thickness meter that suits them.

1. Type of tested material 

First figure out what type of material you want to test? If you want to measure the thickness of a powder coating, you need to find a coating thickness meter that uses the principle of magnetic induction or eddy current. If you want to measure coatings on wooden substrates, an ultrasonic coating thickness meter is perfect for you. What if you want to measure aluminum, enamel and rubber? Or do you need to measure the coating thickness on a magnetic substrate (iron, steel)? Keep this in mind when choosing a coating thickness meter. The magnetic induction coating thickness meter is suitable for measuring the thickness of non-magnetic metals on magnetic substrates. Eddy current coating thickness meters are suitable for measuring the thickness of non-conductive coatings on non-magnetic substrates. If it is a coating thickness gauge using the principle of ultrasonic measurement, it is suitable for measuring the thickness of plastics, ceramics and other materials.

2. Accuracy of coating thickness meter

Coating thickness meters used in different fields have different measurement accuracy. For used car appraisers in the used car industry, coating thickness meters can help them find the difference between original paint and touch-up paint. Used car appraisers often don't have high requirements for accuracy. The coating thickness meter used in the industrial industry has higher accuracy requirements. If the instrument is used in the coating industry, coating manufacturers often have strict requirements on the coating thickness. If the coating thickness is not within the specified range, the coating cannot perform the original product performance, such as the fire resistance and corrosion resistance of the coating.

3. Convenience of using coating thickness meter

     Different brands of coating thickness meters use different methods. Some brands of coating thickness meters have a lot of buttons, which need to be calibrated before use and the operation process is very complicated. Customers who use it for the first time are often at a loss. There are also coating thickness meters dedicated to simplifying the use process and bringing a good user experience to customers. For example, Linshang coating thickness meter ,the instrument has only one button and the operation is simple. No calibration is required before use, just zero adjustment.

4. Data export

   Do I need to record with the pen while measuring with the instrument? Or manually record the data into an Excel spreadsheet and print it out? Linshang LS220B coating thickness meter with Bluetooth can be connected to the Bluetooth APP. When measuring different parts of the car, the data will be automatically recorded on the mobile phone APP without manual recording. After the measurement is completed, you can view the test report on your mobile phone, save the picture and share it to QQ, WeChat, etc. (Note: APP supports Android 6.0 and above)
