Typical Coating Measurement Application

1) Automotive Refinishing Detection:

There are many uses for the Phase II brand coating thickness gages in the automotive industry. One such application would be for detection of a refinished surface. Auctions are a popular to sell vehicles that have been refinished for a variety of reasons and most of the time an unsuspecting buyer will not be aware of this or of the quality of the refinishing job which can end up being very costly to the buyer of said vehicle. To alleviate this problem, the buyers must be prepared to take a fast yet accurate thickness reading of paint on the body panels before making a final decision. That’s where our PTG Series of gages come in. With automatic substrate detection, these gages can perform accurate and non-destructive thickness measurements in seconds. Those few seconds can be the difference between making a profit on a vehicle or losing valuable time and resources.

Other applications would include but are not restricted to any refinishing shop for cars, trucks, tractors or any other metallic body panel that is sprayed with a coating.

2) General Industrial Measurement:

Phase II brand Coating Thickness Gages can be used in most indoor/outdoor industrial type facilites where measurement of common coatings on metallic substrates need to be measured. Many industries such as tank/pressure vessel manufacturers use coatings to protect said material from corrosion due to environmental conditions. Phase II coating thickness gages can quickly and easily measure coating thickness on these materials which if applied to thin will wear off quickly and if applied to thick, will peel or crack off which in turn shortens the overall lifespan of the manufactured product. Obtaining the exact measurement of the coating will provide the manufacturer with the optimal thickness for longevity and profitability.The PTG series of Coating Thicknes Gages perform this job with state of the art speed and accuracy . Best of all, the Phase II brand PTG series of gages are 100% non-destructive since they utilize both Eddy Current and Magnetic Induction to secure a viable thickness measurement.
