Designed to provide a permanent mould of the surface profile, which can then be measured using a thickness gauge.
Testex Tape consists of foam with a non-compressible backing. The foam side is rubbed into the surface providing a permanent mould of the peak-to-valley profile. The profile of the surface can then be measured using the Thickness Gauge.
Testex Replica Tape is available in two profile ranges. It is important that the tape grade chosen is reflective of the profile being measured.
- For surface profiles between 20 & 38µm (0.8 & 1.5mils): Coarse Tape
- For surface profiles between 64 & 115µm (2.5 & 4.5mils): X-Coarse Tape
There are 50 tests in each Testex Tape roll.
