“The new Elcometer 311 doesn’t just take a thickness measurement”

In addition to the paint thickness, the new Elcometer 311 Paint Meter displays the key statistical values used to assess the overall condition of the paint work; number of readings (n), average coating thickness (x), the lowest paint thickness (Lo) and the Elcometer Index Value (EIV).


Elcometer Index Value – EIV3

“The higher the EIV the more severe the PPW”

The Elcometer Index Value (EIV) provides the inspector with a single number which illustrates the vehicle’s overall paint condition and establishes any previous paint work (PPW) which has been undertaken. This quantifiable number determines the extent of rework & the overall quality of the vehicle being appraised.


Wireless Connectivity2

“Seamlessly connect to any PC, Android™ or iOS mobile device”Paint Inspection on Mobile Devices

As each measurement is taken, the new Elcometer 311 Automotive Paint Meter can transmit the thickness value via Bluetooth® either straight into your inspection application or into ElcoMaster®, Elcometer’s mobile app, for instant report generation.
