FN Pro
Paint/Coating Thickness Gauge

High specification and highly automated...
This high spec gauge is quick and easy to use - simply hold the sensor against the surface to be measured and the coating thickness is automatically displayed on the large LCD screen. The reading is also automatically stored to the inbuilt memory from which the last ten readings can be recalled. One touch of a button switches the gauge between reading in µm or mil and one touch of a button flips the display readout upside down for easy reading at different angles.

Measures on steel, aluminium and other metals...
Unlike lower specification gauges, this top specification gauge can measure coating thicknesses on ferromagnetic (e.g. steel) and non-ferromagnetic (e.g. aluminium) substrates via its integrated dual sensors. It automatically detects the substrate metal type (ferromagenetic or non-ferromagnetic) and uses the appropriate measuring technology (magnetic induction or eddy current) to calculate the coating thickness. Inferior gauges are limited to measuring on either ferromagnetic or non-ferromagnetic substrates, or require manual removal and switching of sensor type and selection by the user.

Ideal for the car trade as well as other applications...
Ideal for car detailing, polishing and used car buyers. Used when polishing car paintwork to measure paint thickness to help determine safe polishing threshholds and material removal. Used at car sales and auctions to test for differing paint thicknesses on a vehicle that may indicate an accident repair or non-original paint. However, this gauge is not limited to use on cars and is also suitable for measuring coating thicknesses on other metal items.

Dual technology:

Magnetic Induction: Measures thickness of non-magnetic coatings (e.g. paint, plastic, enamel, rubber, powder coating, zinc chromium, copper, tin) on ferromagnetic metal base (e.g. iron, steel)

Eddy Current: Measures thickness of electrically non-conductive coatings (e.g. paint, plastic, enamel, rubber, powder coating, anodising) on non-ferrous metals (e.g. aluminium, brass, zinc).

Why buy this gauge versus a different model?
Highly automated
  • Auto on/off and auto measurement - no buttons to press, simply hold the gauge against the surface to be measured.
  • Automatic substrate type detection - no user intervention, no settings to change, no need to know the substrate type.
  • Memory function which stores the last 10 readings automatically, speeding the measuring process (no need to write readings down after each measurement - simply take the measurements and write them down afterwards).

Advanced design

  • Integrated dual sensors - no need to detach or switch sensor probes, allowing quick use on different substrate metals
  • Slimline design, lightweight and integrated sensors allow the gauge to be carried in a pocket and used discreetly when inspecting vehicles
  • Sensor size and shape facilitates use on curved surfaces (e.g. pipes, car body panels) unlike "gun" shaped gauges with large probe surfaces.
  • Display flip function enables easy reading of the screen at difficult angles or upside down.

High specification

  • High accuracy versus lower spec gauges (technical details left)
  • High range versus lower spec gauges (technical details left)
  • Comes factory calibrated and fitted with a (user changeable) battery - simply take it out of the box and go!
  • Only requires 1xAAA battery, saving cost and reducing weight.
