Simply place the gauge on the surface to be tested. An accurate thickness reading appears almost instantaneously on the large, easy-to-read display—without scratching or damaging the surface in any way.
PaintCheck automatically selects the optimum measuring method (magnetic induction or eddy-current) to provide an accurate reading even for the thinnest coatings, on steel as well as on aluminum and other non-ferrous metals. No calibration is required.
In addition, PaintCheck provides valuable information about the coating structure, such as paint top coats or body fillers. For example, if the measured thickness value is significantly greater than the expected paint thickness, this would indicate the use of filler material or repainting.
Speed, accuracy, versatility and ease of use make PaintCheck a valuable tool for a wide range of paint inspection tasks.
