Made in Germany
PaintCheck FN is an easy to use paint thickness measurement gauge providing fast, non-destructive and accurate paint thickness measurements on iron/steel and non-ferrous metals e.g. aluminum. The thickness of the coating layer provides information about the coating structure,
repaintings and fillings. If the measured coating thickness exceeds the standard thickness or if the measurements vary, the use of filler material for repair work or repaintings is indicated.
Accident damages can easily be detected with PaintCheck FN.
PaintCheck FN provides two established methods of coating thickness measurement: the magnetic and the eddy current method (DIN EN ISO 2178 and 2360). Both practices offer the highest degree of accuracy on thin coatings on steel, as well as on non-ferrous metals e.g. aluminum. The selection of the practice is made automatically when applying the probe. It is as fast, easy and universal as it gets.

Quality – Made in Germany
Our gauges are exclusively manufactured in Germany and meet the highest quality requirements. A lot is even nowadays handcrafted and exclusively manufactured by us. We only use materials of the highest quality, to ensure the highest possible quality, durability and precise measurement results. We offer a warranty of two years on our products.
Due to our special probe technology the shape and the base material have very little influence on the accuracy. Our probes feature a highly wear-resistent pole tip made of carbide and therefore possess nearly unlimited durability and always provide precise measurements.
Each manufactured device undergoes an individual process of calibration, succeeded by extensive tests of functunality, testing for all features of the device. This is followed by testing the specific accuracy of the device. For this particular purpose foil standards are used, which can be traced back to German length standards. The result of the accuracy test, meaning the measured misalignment, is documented in a producer inspection certificate. The certifcate is included in the delivery content, except in PaintCheck series.
