Product description

Measures coating thickness

Magnetic induction method – thickness of various dielectric (paint, plastic, primer, etc.) and electrically conductive, non magnetic surfaces (aluminum, zinc, chrome, copper) on a ferrous metal substrate (steel, iron).

Eddy current method – thickness of various dielectric coatings (paint, plastic, primer, etc.) on a non-ferrous metal substrate (aluminum, zinc, copper)


Check condition of used car. Non-Destructive testing. Paint process control. Industrial manufacturing control.

For example: when buying a car, before repairing dents without paint (PDR), or scratch removal.
