The TQC Sheen Film thickness gauge is a high precision film and foil thickness gauge, especially developed for measuring so-called “replica tapes” as Testex®, used mainly to measure the surface profile.
The large clear display makes it easy to read the measurement under all conditions. Values can be displayed in either microns or inches.
To minimise the influence of body/hand temperature the gauge is mounted detached from the holder.
The TQC Sheen film thickness gauge operates completely according to “ISO 8503-5 Preparation of steel substrates before application of paints and related products – Surface roughness characteristics of blast-cleaned steel substrates – part 5: Replica tape method for the determination of the surface profile.”
As described in this standard the closing force is 1,5 N. The gauge has to have an accuracy of 5 micron and a resolution of 1 micron. The TQC Sheen Film thickness gauge is supplied in a hardcase.
