Detecting hidden automotive bodywork damage is now easier and faster than ever before thanks to the new Elcometer 311 Automotive Paint Thickness Gauge.

By measuring the paint thickness, the new Elcometer 311 Thickness Gauge identifies any hidden rework on a vehicle, which is not often found in public or commercial condition reports. Hidden rework, impact damage, respray, and filled body panels can all affect a car’s resale value; all can be quickly identified using the new Elcometer 311 Automotive Paint Meter. We are an authorized Canadian distributor of Elcometer products! Discover more great gauges on this website.

Unlike other gauges the new Elcometer 311 displays the key statistical values used to assess the overall condition of the paintwork – such as the number of readings, average coating thickness, and the lowest paint thickness, etc., it also has the unique Elcometer Index Value.

The Elcometer Index Value provides inspectors with a single number that illustrates the vehicle’s overall paint condition and establishes if any previous paintwork has been undertaken. This quantifiable number determines the extent of any rework & the overall quality of the vehicle. The higher the Elcometer Index Value the more severe the previous paintwork condition.

How to find accident damage – Elcometer 311:

Wireless Connectivity

As each measurement is taken, the new Elcometer 311 can transmit the thickness value via Bluetooth® either straight into your inspection application or into ElcoMaster®, Elcometer’s Mobile App, for instant report generation.
If you are working with your own inspection app, the new Elcometer 311 has Bluetooth® – allowing all the measurements to seamlessly pass to your Android™ or Apple® mobile device in real-time.

Key features

  • Instantly switches between steel & aluminum panels without interruption; ideal for the luxury car market
  • Fast reading rate 60+ readings per minute; reducing inspection times
  • Pre-calibrated for immediate use; just add batteries and start measuring
  • Automatic screen brightness: read the display even in bright sunlight
  • Robust, water-resistant design with built-in temperature compensation; ensures accuracy in all weather conditions, from the North Pole to the Sahara, from the rainforest to your back
  • Scratch, solvent & water-resistant color display for protection against accidental damage
  • Everything you need to take measurements straight from the box; including a protective carry case which easily clips onto your belt
  • Bluetooth® data output seamlessly connects to any PC, Android™ or Apple® mobile device for instant report generation

QUICK TIP:

How to take a reading with Elcometer 311:

1. Whilst holding the gauge perpendicular, gently place the probe onto the surface.
• The reading may be inaccurate if the probe is not held flat against the surface.
2. The coating thickness is shown on the display.
•  ‘>500µm’ (‘>20mils’) indicates a reading outside the gauge range.
3. For subsequent readings, lift the probe off and then replace it on to the coated surface.

The Elcometer 311 Model T calculates and displays statistical values as each reading is taken, see Section 6 ‘Statistics’ on page 6 for details.
