New PosiTector® SPG Probes
Surface profile probes for blasted steel and textured coatings

The PosiTector SPG surface profile probe has been redesigned and features a more durable Alumina wear surface. Additionally two new separate probes are available.

The PosiTector SPG measures and records peak to valley surface profile height in accordance with ASTM D4417‐B and others.

Redesigned built-in probe (SPG)

  • measures the profile of steel cleaned by abrasive blast
  • range: 0 to 20 mils / 500 microns

2 new separate probes (SPG-S and SPG-CS)

  • SPG-S - same measuring specifications as the built‐in SPG probe above but with a 3ft/1m cable for easier handling and greater accessibility onto a variety of surfaces
  • SPG-CS - similar in appearance to the SPG‐S probe but with an extended measuring range and rounder tip. Ideal for measuring the profile of textured coatings and other surface profile applications.

PosiTector® 6000 Xtreme
Coating Thickness Probe for rough and hot surfaces

The new PosiTector 6000 FXS Xtreme probe measures the same 1500µm/60mil coating thickness range as our popular F and FS probes, has our standard 2 year warranty, but is uniquely designed for rugged applications


  • A zirconia-toughened alumina wear face for measuring on rough, abrasive surfaces.
  • Ability to measure on hot surfaces.
  • Faster measurement speed of 100+ per minute while maintaining high accuracy and precision.
  • Ideal for scanning large surfaces quickly at 200+ readings per minute without having to raise the probe between measurements.

The PosiTector 6000 FXS probe is compatible with PosiTector bodies with serial numbers greater than 700,000 (purchased after April 2011).

PosiTector® Interchangeable Probes

David Beamish accepts the award from NACE president, Tushar Jhaveri


DeFelsko's PosiTector® Interchangeable Probes for inspection instruments has been named a Materials Performance Corrosion Innovation of the Year.

The American designed and manufactured PosiTector body accepts all interchangeable probes including coating thickness (6000/200/PC), environmental (DPM), surface profile (RTR/SPG), and ultrasonic wall thickness (UTG) probes.

This innovation allows quick and easy conversion from a coating thickness gage to a surface profile gage, dew point meter or ultrasonic wall thickness gage with a simple probe change. Each probe retains its own unique calibration information allowing for full probe interchangeability, an industry first...

PosiTest® AT Verifier

The new PosiTest AT Verifier is ideal for checking the accuracy and operation of PosiTest Adhesion Testers and is an important component in fulfilling both ISO and in-house quality control requirements.

The PosiTest AT Verifier and included documents allow the user to certify the accuracy of adhesion testers.

Important Features

  • High Precision load cell and handheld smart sensor indicator (pre-programmed for easy use)
  • Fitted with a permanent steel 20 mm loading fixture (dolly). A conversion factor is used to verify other sizes.
  • Comes with a Sample Certificate of Accuracy and Measurement Uncertainty Worksheet
  • Certificates of Calibration showing traceability to NIST are included for both the load cell and smart sensor indicator

Additional Information


PosiTector® probe interchangeability just got better.

PosiTector bodies accepts all PosiTector 6000, 200, DPM, UTG, RTR and SPG probes easily converting from a coating thickness gage to a dew point meter, surface profile gage or wall thickness gage

Exciting New Features:

Hot Swap - change probes without powering down the instrument.
Fast and easy! View Video

Probe Settings Retention- PosiTector bodies remember the stored settings of each probe that was attached making for easy probe swapping. Memory batch, cal settings, measurement units and more are retained. View Video

Additional Memory Capacity - Standard models could previously store a total of 250 measurements for only a single probe. Now they store 250 measurements for each probe (one batch per probe) eliminating the need to download measurements between probe changes.

These features are included with all new PosiTector gages without a price increase or any additional charges.

PosiTector bodies manufactured after April 2011 with serial numbers greater than 700,000 support the new features as well. Simply update your existing PosiTector for free by following step by step instructions at .


PosiTector® RTR Replica Tape Reader

This remarkable new digital micrometer measures and records average peak to valley surface profile height with improved accuracy using Testex™ Press-O-Film™ Replica Tape.

It also provides inspectors with a digital record of measurements that can be downloaded to our suite of PosiSoft® solutions.

Important Features

  • Measures replica tape with improved accuracy over conventional analog spring micrometers
  • Automatically subtracts the 2 mil / 50.8 micron incompressible polyester substrate thickness
  • Convenience/economy of using one tape instead of averaging the results from two tape grades
  • Retains a digital record of replica tape measurements for downloading and reporting
  • Probe connects to current model PosiTector bodies to reduce cost
  • Conforms to international standards including ASTM D4417, NACE RP0287, SSPC-PA 17, AS 3894.5 and ISO 8503-5
