    Tips for Using Coating Thickness Gauge

    Coating thickness gauge can non-destructively measure the thickness of non-magnetic coatings on magnetic metal substrates and the thickness of non-conductive cladding on non-magnetic metal substrates. The coating thickness gauge has small measurement error, high reliability, good stability and easy operation. It is a testing instrument to control and ensure product quality and is widely used in manufacturing, metal processing industry, chemical industry, commodity inspection and other testing fields.

    5 Tips for using a paint thickness gauge

    • Do not use inferior batteries, which will cause leakage and cause corrosion of the motherboard of the host computer. In case of leakage with an inferior battery, send it for repair immediately. Otherwise, the mainframe of the coating thickness gauge will be scrapped directly. If the thickness gauge is not used for a long time, the battery needs to be taken out.
    • When plugging and unplugging the probe of the coating thickness gauge, it is necessary to turn off the power of the main unit of before proceeding, otherwise, it will easily cause the integrated block in the probe to burn out.
    • When the thickness gauge is measured, the probe should be placed smoothly, the force should not be too large, and the speed should not be very fast. When testing, the probe must not be scratched on the surface to be tested, which will easily cause damage to the coating thickness gauge probe.
    • It is very important that measurements cannot be made when the coating is not dry. Many customers often measure when the coating is not dry, causing the probe to stick to the paint, and then wash off the paint with banana water or xylene before use. If this is done, the more serious situation is that the thickness gauge probe is directly scrapped. Even if it is not scrapped, the sensitivity of the probe will be greatly reduced, and the service life of the probe will also be reduced.
    • When choosing a coating thickness gauge, try to choose a split-type instrument. Since the probe is a wearing part, it has a certain service life and is also consumable. The probe of the all-in-one machine cannot be repaired, and the price of replacing the probe is very high, close to the price of a new machine, while the split machine only needs to replace the probe.
