Faster Measurements and Enhanced Scanning
with PosiTector 6000 Coating Thickness Gages

DeFelsko is pleased to announce several major enhancements to the PosiTector® 6000 series of coating thickness gages for metal substrates. View the following video for an overview of these exciting updates.

Faster Measurement Speeds

All PosiTector 6000 probes (S/N 305,600+) now take over 60 readings per minute, quickly taking measurements while allowing the user enough time to place the probe.

Fast Mode
Fast mode increases the measurement speed even further to over 90 readings per minute for experienced users and straightforward applications.

Scan Mode
To quickly analyze an area, scan mode now takes over 180 readings per minute while the probe is continuously held on the surface (Advanced models only).

Scan Mode Options

Advanced Models now feature 3 powerful Scan Modes:

Normal Scan Mode takes continuous readings without lifting the probe and can be used in conjunction with other modes like PA2, HiLo, and others.

NEW Statistics Scan Mode takes continuous readings and records the average, standard deviation, min/max thickness after each scan.

NEW Limited Count Average Scan Mode takes continuous readings up to a user-specified count. The gage displays and records the average of the readings.

NEW PosiPatch Flexible Magnetic Ring for Salt Contamination Measurement on Small Diameters

All DeFelsko Bresle Method Patch options, including the PosiPatch™, are compatible with the PosiTector® SST Soluble Salt Tester or any existing conductivity meter.

Unlike existing Bresle method patches on the market, the reusable PosiPatch saves time and money. It has an air permeable membrane that allows for automatic air removal and uses safe, flexible dispensing tips instead of sharp needles.

The innovative PosiPatch attaches to steel surfaces using a unique magnetic ring. Like the Standard Magnetic Ring, the NEW Flexible Magnetic Ring leaves no messy adhesive residue to clean. Intended for pipes and other tight diameters, it allows the PosiPatch to form a tight, leak-free seal on inside and outside diameters greater than 10 cm (4 in.).*

The Standard Magnetic Ring continues to be included in all PosiPatch Kits and is the first choice for flat surfaces and curved surfaces with diameters greater than 1m (40 in.).

*Flexible Patch Minimum ID is 12 cm (4.5 in.)*

DeFelsko announces the new PosiTest® LPD Low voltage Pinhole Detector. It uses a wet sponge to detect holidays, pinholes and other discontinuities on metal and concrete substrates without damaging the coating. Supplied in a rugged inspection case, the easy-to-use PosiTest LPD includes everything needed for testing.

Important Features:

  • Lightweight, ergonomic design - while most other devices are box-shaped, the PosiTest LPD was specifically designed to fit comfortably in the hand with a balanced weight distribution
  • 4 voltage output options conform to international standards
  • Automatic self-test verifies voltage calibration
  • Regulated voltage outputs will not drop under load
  • GroundSense™ visibly reassures the user that the instrument is properly grounded
  • Common threads and connectors allow for use with existing paint roller extensions
  • Weatherproof, dustproof and shockproof - meets or exceeds IP65
  • Long Form Certificate of Calibration included

Additional Information


DeFelsko is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the new PosiTector® SST Soluble Salt Tester for measuring the concentration of soluble salts on metal surfaces.

New! PosiTector SHD Shore Hardness Durometer

DeFelsko proudly introduces the new PosiTector SHD Shore Hardness Durometer. The PosiTector SHD measures the indentation hardness of non-metallic materials such as polymers, elastomers and rubbers. In the corrosion industry, durometers are commonly used to ensure proper curing of pipeline repair wraps. Two models are available for different hardness ranges - Shore A and Shore D.

PosiTector SHD Features

  • User-adjustable measurement time with onscreen countdown to conform to national and international standards
  • Internal memory, statistics and USB port
  • Certificate of Calibration showing traceability to NIST included
  • Auto Ignore mode disregards readings below 20 or above 90 per international standards
  • HiLo alarm audibly and visually alerts when measurements exceed user-specified limits
  • Includes test block to verify operation
  • Compatible with PosiSoft suite of solutions, including the updated PosiTector App
  • Compatible with all PosiTector Advanced and PosiTector Standard gage bodies with a color display. Simple gage update required.

Introducing the PosiTector 6000 FNDS Probe

We are pleased to announce a new addition to the PosiTector series of coating thickness gages, the PosiTector 6000 FNDS probe for duplex coating systems applied to steel substrates. The PosiTector 6000 FNDS probe simultaneously measures and displays the individual layer thicknesses of zinc and paint in a duplex coating system.

PosiTector 6000 FNDS Probe Features

  • Measures and displays the individual layer thicknesses of zinc and paint in a duplex coating system with a single reading
  • Ideal for measuring the three types of zinc used in duplex coating systems - hot-dip, electro and zinc spray metallizing (thermal spray zinc)
  • When taken out of duplex mode, the instrument can be used as a conventional ferrous/non-ferrous gage to measure the thickness of coatings on ferrous or non-ferrous metal substrates
  • Scan mode - Take continuous readings without lifting the probe (Advanced models only)
  • Compatible with all PosiTector Advanced and PosiTector Standard gage bodies with a color display. Simple gage update required.
