Paint Thickness Gauge

Paint Thickness Gauges are commonly used for measuring the thickness of paint, anodising, galvanising, zinc plating, chrome and/or powder coatings.

Our Paint Thickness gauge is a sophisticated yet simple to use paint thickness gauge that can enable the user to quickly determine previous repairs that may have been carried out to a vehicles bodywork. The gauge works on both steel and aluminium panels switching between either mode automatically. Often paint repairs are not easily or quickly identified when relying just on eyesight and/or fingers. Essential knowledge before committing to paint restoration work or when buying used vehicles!

Our Paint Thickness Gauge features a large, easy to read display that can be fliped to make reading easier. It also includes a power saving auto off function that switches the gauge off 30 seconds after the last measurement is taken  as well as on board memory also stores a running record of the last ten measurements taken.

The CleanYourCar paint thickness Gauge are supplied pre-calibrated, with case, instructions, 4 x thickness shims, and steel / aluminium check pieces.

Very accurate tool and found the device very easy to use. Looked at getting one for a few months as with out it you are very much in the dark. Feel much more confident now when detailing my car and even more when detailing other people's cars. Wouldn't be with out it now its worth every penny.

Does exactly what it says on the tin. No fancy thrills or frills, but good quality product that reads accurately - what more do you need

Okay, so first what's in the box? There's the gauge itself (no batteries included so make sure you have a AAA on-hand). There are 4 plastic calibration films/shims in a small stiff card envelope. Finally you get a Ferrous and a Non-Ferrous metal disc. The whole thing comes in something, that for want of a better description, is about the same size and shape as a glasses case. First thing I did was put in a battery and test the 4 films against the two metal blanks (after first taking the backing film off the blanks). The gauge performed pretty well and was within 3um of the stated thickness on every shim. I noticed in the guide that the device allows you to do a one or two point calibration. So I did a two-point calibration (easy, couple of button presses) for the ~50um and ~250um shims. After that the gauge was absolutely bang on. Next thing was to test it on some paint. My 2007 Fiesta ST gave readings of 130um on the roof, 100um everywhere else, and about 80um on the boot lid/tailgate (signs of some corrective polishing at some stage in the cars life perhaps). A 2009 BMW Mini Cooper gave similar readings except on the roof where it was >150uM (the car has a different colour roof so I wonder if the body colour is applied all over at the factory and the roof colour applied on top of that?). In conclusion the gauge is easy to use and calibrate. It's accurate and precise. For it's price too, I think this is the ideal addition to any detailer's "toolbag". Especially for those with machine polishers working on cars with an unknown or questionable history. Can fault it at all.
