Two measurement modes and working modes are designed to meet the needs of any project. The CG204 also features reading memory storage and user-programmable high/low alarms.

  • Measuring Range: 0 to 1250 μm, 0 to 49mils
  • Basic Accuracy: ±3%
  • Minimum Curvature Radius: 1.5mm (59.06mils) for Ferrous; 3mm (118.1mils) for Non-Ferrous
  • Minimum Diameter: 7mm (275.6mils) for Ferrous; 5mm (196.9mils) for Non-Ferrous
  • Minimum Thickness: 0.5mm (19.69mils) for Ferrous; 0.3mm (11.81mils) for Non-Ferrous

Professional Coating Thickness Testing

Easy to read display

Backlit LCD display clearly shows readings, measuring modes, statistical analysis, low battery indication, and whether the meter is connected via USB.

Automatic recognition of ferrous and non-ferrous substrates

The CG204 can automatically select the measuring mode or the user can choose between Ferrous or Non-Ferrous measurement modes.

Memory stores 400 readings

The meter stores a maximum of 80 direct readings and 320 group readings.

Statistical analysis

The meter calculates number of readings, average value, standard deviation, maximum reading and minimum reading.

Quick and Easy Operation

Two measuring modes

Continuous mode displays a running average of readings as they are taken; Single mode takes measurements one at a time and accompanies readings with an audible tone.

Two working modes

Direct mode clears readings when meter is switched off but saves statistical analysis data; Group mode stores readings and statistical values, and calibration and alarm limit values can be set for each group.

User-settable high/low alarms

High and low alarm limits can be set; when an alarm limit is reached the meter displays an alarm alert icon.

PC interface

Communicate with a PC using the supplied software and USB jack on the meter.

I am a licensed car appraiser, my company appraises about 3 thousand cars per year, I''ve used many paint meters throughout the years and decided to take a gamble on the Extech CG204 as my business is expanding and I am hiring about a dozen more field inspectors. I did not want to spend $750 on a paint meter and since I will be buying many, I wanted to give the cheap ones a shot.

With that being said, it is with regret that I have to give this paint meter a 3 star rating.

First, let me start with the Pros:

-Cheap, actually about 25% the cost of the leading competitor in the field (my other meter)
-Screen easy to read
-Stores values (not very useful to me, but I can see the benefit)
-Compact and easy to carry
-Accurate when calibrated

Now, my Cons:

-Requires calibration after every usage. Let me elaborate, for some reason, the paint meter loses its calibration within 5 minutes of usage or after you turn it off.
-Requires calibration when switching between ferrous to non-ferrous body panels
-Will default to micro-meters after turning off (I prefer using mils as my unit of measurement)
-Too many buttons
-Confusing instructions and menus
-Has a USB port but the software does not work on a Mac and it''s hard to figure out
-Does not seem very durable

I measured thicknesses using my other meter and compared it to the Extech, they were within 1% of each other, this to me a is a good sign.

The bottom line: if you have the time and patience to calibrate this unit every time and you''re on a budget, go ahead and buy the extech. If you''re a large wholesale buyer and need a tool that works in adverse conditions and will be accurate every single time sans-calibration, I suggest you look elsewhere. For me, the search continues.

It is off calibration samples by 5-30um right out the box. Even if you recalibrate it- next time it will be off again. It''s impossible to reset everything to 0 by pressing Zero button. If you measure 2 different surfaces it will through off your AVG # and only way to reset AVG is to turn whole unit off. It was almost 200 USD when I bought it and they now dropped price $40. It''s obviously not a good brand and unit considering how off it is and how they manipulate the price. I will be returning it back.

"Rupes Product Training: E9 - Machine Sanding Application" 25:30 mark. There are more expensive units out there and certainly some really cheap units out there. If you''re doing this for a living or pretty serious about paint correction, this is a great unit for a reasonable price. And, Extech was great to deal with when I had questions about the unit. Highly recommending it.

Turn it on
Calibrate it
Measure thickness with it
Turn it off
ATTEN MFG: If you want this device to record trillions of bits of information, make a different model that takes four days to figure out how to measure thickness... BUT make at least one useful model for those of us that simply want to measure thickness!

Any car guy would be nuts to buy a high end sports car without a coating thickness tester (aka: paint meter) of some sort. This is the only way to know for sure if all the paint is original by testing the thickness. CarFax and AutoCheck may not report an accident, but that doesn''t mean it didn''t happen. There are a ton of options out there, some cheaper than this and some much more expensive. The Extech works well, is easy to calibrate, has a few different mods of operation, etc. It''s plenty accurate for this purpose and at approximately half the cost of the most well regarded competitor it''s a deal. Would highly recommend.

Although it isn''t capable of measuring thicknesses on plastic and carbon fiber, I''m able to figure out more information of the overall condition. The one thing that would be nice is a better case, don''t know why but the fabric case feels like a cheap multi-tool case, but it works.
