The Phase II PTG-3500 Coating Thickness Gauge (PTG-3500)


Simplicity in coating thickness measurement!

The PHASE II PTG-3500 coating thickness gauge can perform two different methods of calculating thickness measurement by utilizing the characteristics of both eddy current and magnetic induction. Testing performance is both non-destructive and extremely accurate. With this state of the art thickness gauge, you can easily detect the thickness of nonmagnetic coating on a magnetic substrate (ferrous) or an insulating coating on a non-magnetic conductive substrate (non-ferrous) utilizing either an integrated probe or our version that comes with 1 auto-detect external probe. The Phase II PTG-3500 can be used in many areas of industry including manufacturing, general engineering, commercial inspection, etc.

The Phase II PTG-3500 Coating Thickness Gauge Features:

  • The PTG-3500 utilizes an integrated 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.

Automotive Refinishing Detection
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. That’s 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.
