NEW! PosiTector® RTR probe
The PosiTector RTR series measures and records surface profile parameters using TestexPress-O-Film
Replica Tape.

The NEW PosiTector RTR-P probe uses thickness and imaging sensors to characterize replica tape and generate images and statistics of the original surface.

PosiTector RTR-P Features

  • Measure Peak Height (HL)
  • Measure Peak Density (Pd)
  • Generates 2D/3D images and SDF files (Advanced models)
    • black and white two dimensional (2D) and color three dimensional (3D) thumbnail images. Ideal for inclusion into reports and confirming consistent blasting results.
    • a high resolution SDF (surface data file) that can be imported into free or purchased third-party rendering software. that can be imported into third-party rendering software. The result is a 3D map of the blasted steel surface at a cost far less than interferometric or confocal profiling devices.

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).

Certified SPG Standards

 for depth micrometer surface profile gages

The Certified SPG Standards from DeFelsko are ideal for verifying the accuracy and operation of depth micrometer surface profile gages including the PosiTector® SPG and are an important component in fulfilling both ISO and in-house quality control requirements.

Important Features

  • Ideal for use in calibration labs
  • Standards consist of 4 sapphire test plates mounted in a precision ground steel base and supplied in a hard shell case
  • Sapphire test plates are individually serialized for traceability to PTB-includes a Certificate of Calibration
  • Certified and labeled in both Metric and Imperial units

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
