Thciknesstesting of Paint on CFRP or Plastic

We are just screening the latest possibilities to do thickness measurement of paint on a plastic substrate.
Means: we need to get a good idea of the thickness of all layers of decorative paint, surface protection, etc on a very low conductive or isolating fibre reinforced plastics e.g. CFRP, GFRP, and so on. But main focus on CFRP.
Wew know there are some UT instruments on the market which claim to be designed to match these material compositions: but having sometimes more then 10 different layers on top of the substrate - you can imagine the impedance difference between substrate and the coatings is not significant and multiple echoes out of each layers interfere...e.g. 30 ... 200 MHz UT does not promize really a solution...
We know about some other techniques and methods.
But up to now we see a need for much better performance.
So it is a tricky task and I would like to now about new commercial ideas (Not academic ideas, as there is now guaratee that they could ever become reality)
But: It should be NDT , not anything like Paint Borer, Paint Inspection Gauge or comparable.

ISAFE3 Intrinsically Safe Sensor System

ISAFE3 intrinsically safe sensor system of Vallen Systeme is especially targeted at the petrochemica
...
l - as well as oil and gas transportation industry. The sensor system is designed for permanent monitoring or periodic inspection tasks. Sensors are available for different AE-frequency ranges optimized for corrosion and fatigue crack detection and other applications. The ISAFE 3 sensor system consists of an AE-sensor (model ISAS3) certified according to ATEX/IEC for installation in zone 0, gas group IIC, IP68, 20 to +60 °C, and a signal isolator (model SISO3) certified for installation in zone 2. An ISAS3 sensor can be mounted in atmosphere or submerged, e.g. in water or crude oil. It is supported by mounting tools for temporary (magnets) or permanent (welded) installation. ISAFE3 supports automatic sensor coupling test and can be used with any AE signal processor supporting 28V supply at 90 mA peak, e.g. Vallen Systeme ASIP-2/A.
