The PHASE II PTG-5500
coating thickness gauge can perform two different methods of calculating coating thickness measurement by utilizing the characteristics of both eddy current and magnetic induction.
Coating Thickness gauge Testing performance is both non-destructive and extremely accurate.
With this state of the art coating thickness gage, you can easily detect the coating thickness of nonmagnetic coating on a magnetic substrate (ferrous) or an insulating coating on a non-magnetic conductive substrate (non-ferrous) utilizing our auto-detect probe
coating thickness gauge can be used in many areas of industry including automotive auctions, manufacturing, general engineering, commercial inspection, etc.

There are many uses for the Phase II brand coating thickness gauges, (paint meters, paint thickness meters, paint gauges) in the automotive industry. One such application for these portable paint thickness meters would be for fast and accurate detection of a refinished surface. Auto auctions/car auctions, are a popular method to sell vehicles that have been refinished for a variety of reasons. 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. Insurance inspectors and appraisers at car auctions often use these paint meters/coating thickness gauges/paint thickness meters to evalute the current condition and quality of paint on vehicle in question. To alleviate paint quality issues, the buyers/inspectors at car auctions, body shops, auto dealers, etc must be prepared to take a fast yet accurate paint thickness reading of paint on the body panels before making a final decision. Thats where our PTG Series of paint gauges come in. With worldwide distribution these portable coating thickness gauges can be purchased through any auto body shop supply facility, car dealer supply co, as well as any tooling distribution company. Call us direct for nearest dealer to your facility.
With automatic substrate detection, these paint thickness meters/gauges 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.
Buyers of this type of coating thickness gauges/paint meter, would be car dealerships, auto body shops, insurance inspectors/appraisers, black book car buyers, professional car buyers, auto auctions/car auctions, body shop supplies and any other profession that needs quick, precise paint thickness measurements.
Other applications for the Phase II paint meter / auto dealer paint meter, would include but are not restricted to any refinishing shop for cars, trucks, tractors or any other steel or aluminum body panel that is sprayed with a coating.
Non-Destructive Coating Thickness Measuring Principles
Magnetic Induction Priciple:
The Phase II PTG series of Coating Thickness Gages utilize this non-destructive priciple when measuring coatings on ferro-magnetic substrates such as Steel and Iron. The coatings must be non-magnetic such as; paint, enamel, aluminum, chrome, copper and brass.
The Phase II PTG series of Coating Thickness Gages utilize this non-destructive priciple when measuring coatings on non-magnetic substrates such as; Aluminum, Aluminum Alloys, bronze, copper, brass tin and rustproof weak magnetic steels. The coatings must be electrically insulating such as; paint, enamel, plastics, anodized coatings and ceramics.
NOTE: All PTG series Coating Thickness Gages are inspected and calibrated using the Two-Point Calibration procedure prior to shipment.
The PTG-5500 coating thickness gauge utilizes a rugged probe that can automatically detect a Ferrous or Non-Ferrous substrate and comes with 2 substrate samples (steel, aluminum), 4 calibrated thickness samples, carry case, batteries and operation manual.
