Defelsko Certified Plastic Shims

Article No. 11243

Certified Plastic Shims

The Defelsko Certified Plastic Shims simulate a coating over a particular substrate material or shape. They are for use with all Type 2, electronic coating thickness gauges, and protect the probe from damage or premature wear when placed over hot or abrasive surfaces. They can be placed on top of soft or tacky coating films to obtain thickness measurements without the gauge probe depressing the coating film.
