1) Automotive Refinishing Detection:
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.
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.
