Replica/ Testex Tape:
The Elcometer 122 Testex Replica Tape is a very simple technique to measure a surface profile. The foam side of the Testex Tape is used to mould the peak-to-valley profile of the surface and then the measurement is taken by the Elcometer 124, a mechanical Surface Profile and Thickness Gauge.
The Elcometer 124 Thickness gauge has been specifically designed to provide the correct anvil area and measurement force so as not to effect the surface profile reading. The gauge can also be zeroed to offset the original tape window thickness (typically 50µm (2 mils). The Testex Replica Tape is a proof of test, as the tape can be included in manual reports.
Elcometer 7061 MarSurf PS1 Surface Roughness Tester:
In protective coating applications there is a requirement to measure surface roughness.
Measurements of surface roughness are expressed in terms of Ra, Rz or Tp. These values include peak-to-valley profile measurement in combination with an assessment of the frequency of peaks within the sample area.
The Elcometer 7061 surface roughess tester is a light weight and portable measuring solution for the range of surface roughness measurements required for compliance to International Standards.
The unit is also suitable for assessing surface roughness conditions in a wide range of general industrial applications; particularly where the sample is too large to bring to the laboratory.
Ø Multi-Lingual Display: All the required information is displayed on screen in a choice of 14 languages.
Ø Flexible: Can be used in virtually any position; horizontally, vertically, upside down. A height adjustment accessory to accommodate various sample sizes is supplied with each gauge as standard.
Ø Integrated Calibration Standard: No external calibration standard is required; provides greater ease of use.
Ø Drive Unit: Can be rotated and moved longitudinally; enables the stylus pick-up to be moved to the calibrating position. The stylus pick-up is also protected for transport in this position.
Ø Stylus pick-up with removable protection: 2µm (80µin) diamond stylus tip with a measuring force of 0.7 mN. Different stylus’ are available for various applications.
