Certified Plastic Shims

  • Simulate a coating over a particular substrate material or shape. Gauge 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 gauges

  • 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 gauge probe depressing the coating film
