Certified coated-metal-plate4-170x170Shim Overview

  • Simulate a coating over a particular substrate material or shape. Gage performance can be conveniently verified on a regular basis as required by some international test methods
  • For use with all Type 2, electronic coating thickness gages
  • Protects the probe from damage or premature wear when placed over hot or abrasive surfaces
  • Can be placed on top of soft or tacky coating films to obtain thickness measurements without the gage probe depressing the coating film

Certified coated-metal-plate5-V2-170x170A package of 5 non-certified shims is included with all DeFelsko Electronic coating tthickness gages (Type 2).

Note: Shims are generally not acceptable for use with Type 1, Magnetic pull-off gages such as the PosiTest FM/GM and PosiPen
