Certified & Non-Certified Plastic Shims

For use with magnetic, eddy-current and ultrasonic coating thickness gages.
(Not intended for use with Type 1 magnetic pull-off type gages)

 
   
Shims Overview  
  • Simulate a coating over a particular substrate material or shape. Gage 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 gages
  • 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 gage probe depressing the coating film

Certified Plastic Shims

  • Certified shims provide an economical alternative to Coated Metal Plates but have a reduced accuracy
  • Certified Plastic Shims are available in the following thicknesses (all thicknesses are approximate):

  • Each shim is packaged in their own plastic protective pouch
  • Certificate of Calibration showing traceability to NIST is included with each shim or set of shims
  • Certified and labeled in both Metric and Imperial units

 

 

 

Non-Certified Plastic Shims

  • Provide a quick operational check of the instrument by allowing the user to perform practice measurements
  • Can be used to protect the probe when measuring on tacky, rough or hot surfaces
  • Labeled in both Metric and Imperial units
  • Available as a set of 5 (below)

A package of 5 non-certified shims is included with all DeFelsko electronic coating thickness gages (Type 2).

Note: While DeFelsko inspects non-certified plastic shims to ensure they are within the nominal stated accuracy, they are not traceable to any national or international standard.
