Paint Gauges Galore! New Paint Gauges @ Autopia-CarCare!

We have just drastically expanded our offering of DeFelsko Paint Thickness Gauges by bringing in 3 new gauges and 2 new paint accessories.

PTG (Paint Thickness Gauages) just make sense. If you are an avid enthusiast or car collector you can monitor the thickness of your paint over time and maintain ideal thickness levels for length of owner ship. If you are a detailer, the amount of insurance the machines offer will likely pay for themselves several times over. I would have never polished an original paint (the ONLY one left) Shelby 427 Cobra with out having an accurate measurement of the paint thickness.

If you are a detailer who is focusing on high-end work, or hopes to one day focus on that work, the level of professionalism and peace-of-mind for you client cannot be expressed.

About DeFelsko:
DeFelsko Corporation, a leading U.S. Manufacturer of coating thickness gauges and inspection instruments, has been delivering Simple, Durable and Accurate gauges since 1966. Family owned and operated in Northern New York, their state of the art facility houses research, development, manufacturing, quality, sales and service departments.

Over the years, DeFelsko has pioneered many technologies including the first combination ferrous/non-ferrous gauge to automatically recognize the substrate and take a measurement and the first hand-held ultrasonic coating thickness gauge for non-metal substrates including plastic, wood and concrete. DeFelsko is recognized as a premier American manufacturer of quality inspection instruments.

So whats new?!

DeFelsko PosiTector 200 Standard & Advanced

First we brought in 2 versions of the wildly popular DeFelsko PosiTector 200. These gauges use ULTRASOUND to measure coating thickness over various substrates including wood, composites (carbon fiber/fiber glass/plastic), ferrous and non-ferrous metals (steel, galvanized steel, aluminum) and just about any material you will find on the exterior of any automobile.

The Standard Version displays total thickness coatings (from substrate to the top of the paint/coating):

The Advanced Version displays individual layer thicknesses (of up to 3 different layers). Now you can monitor exactly how much clear coat you are working with!

DeFelsko PosiTector 6000 FNS1 Coating Thickness Gauge

The DeFelsko PosiTector 6000 FNS1 Coating Thickness Gauge uses a combination of magnetic and eddy currents to provided extremely accurate results on ferrous and non-ferrous metals. This is a rugged design that provides quick and accurate total thickness readings. The DeFelsko PosiTector 6000 FNS1 Coating Thickness Gauge includes PosiTector gauge body, 6000 coating thickness probe, SPG surface profile probe, and DPM environmental probe in a hardshell case.

In addition to these three new gauges we also brought in some really cool accessories that compliment both the DeFelsko 200 and 6000 models.

DeFlesko PosiSoft Software:

DeFelsko PosiSoft Software works on Window's based computers to keep detailed records of your paint measurement readings. The DeFelsko PosiSoft Software works with DeFelsko PosiTector 200 Series 6000 Series paint thickness gauges. This program allows you to create charts and keep notes on readings making it ideal for car collectors and high-end detailers. This software could prevent damage to your paint!

DeFelsko IR Printer (works with 200 and 6000 models).
