Paint Thickness Gauge Fe/NFe 0~1700μm

Wanting to help avoid paint burn? Needing to find out a vehicles history? Just wanting a safe way of polishing your paint the right way? Then you need a paint thickness gauge!

Our Digital Paint Thickness Gauge measures the paintwork depth on the ferrous and non-ferrous metal surfaces of your vehicle. What this means is steel and aluminium panels can be measured with ease to give you an indication of how much paint you have to deal with.

Most modern vehicles will have up to 150 microns (μm) of paint; which includes all primer, base and clear coat layers. In real life scenarios you are generally safe to polish anything 80+ microns, compound & polish anything 95+ microns and sand anything 115+ microns. Anything under 70 microns should be waxed or a finishing polish at most.

This gauge is a digital measurement gauge which has a large 2" LCD display with 2-way rotating view to make life easy. The unit self calibrates for instant use. Measurements can range from 0-1700μm with an accuracy of +- 2% (which is pretty good in our industry!). This particular unit also has an internal storage of up to 30 readings for easy recall and data capture.

This kit also includes a strong hard shell carry case for safe storage!

This gauge will not measure paint thickness on plastics, fibreglass, carbon fibre and other non-metal substrates.

Great service and very happy with the thickness gauge

Seems to do the job

This tool seems to do a good job at measuring paint thickness which is essential for scoping a job on any particular car. Interestingly my wife's Lexus had twice the paint thickness to my Stinger. The instruction manual is in Pigin english however it's good enough to understand how to calibrate and use the tool. The price is at the bottom end for thickness gauges so I guess the above is understandable. Overall I'm happy with my purchase as I'd rather have a gauge than not when tacking a new job and being confident about how aggressive I can be. Good helpful description of the tool and its use on the UCC website.
