Complete solutions for measuring powder coating before and after cure. Each kit contains the new PosiTest PC, two DeFelsko Powder Combs and your choice of dry film thickness gage. Select from 6 pre-configured kits or build your own.
Powerful desktop software for downloading, viewing, printing and storing measurement data. No internet connection required.
Coatings must be applied within certain minimum and maximum dry film thickness specifications. But waiting to measure coating thickness after curing can result in product waste and production delays. Accurate measurement at the time of application:
The instrument uses 4 “AAA” alkaline batteries(included) providing 16 hours of continuous measurement.
No. Our instruments are designed for simple operation, feature easy-to-use menus, instruction manuals, and helpful videos. In lieu of demonstration models, we provide unlimited technical support via telephone and/or email, and a limited 30-day money back guarantee.
The PosiTest PC has been completely redesigned as a dedicated stand-alone unit and is now part of the PosiTest family of instruments. No PosiTector gage body required.
Yes. The PosiTest PC complies with ASTM D7378, “Standard Practice for Measurement of Thickness of Applied Coating Powders to Predict Cured Thickness”.
The probe uses airborne ultrasound to non-destructively analyze applied powder in seconds.
No. Certificates of Calibration show traceability to a National Standard and no uncured powder thickness standard exists at this time. The PosiTest PC Powder Checker is an in-process tool. To validate the PosiTest PC’s readings and confirm the final thickness meets specifications, measure the cured coating with a PosiTector 6000 or PosiTest DFT dry film thickness gage. Our dry film thickness gages include a Certificate of Calibration.
Yes. The PosiTest PC has the ability to stream positioning and measurement data via its USB port, and can be integrated into on-line, automated applications with appropriate fixturing. To ensure the USB cable stays reliably connected, the USB Retention Fixture accessory is recommended.
No. The PosiTest PC is a non-contact instrument and there are no cables to accidentally brush and disturb the powder.
No. In fact, the PosiTest PC performs best when there is slight movement. It was designed to measure moving parts on swinging hooks.
Yes. The PosiTest PC can store up to 999 readings in one batch. Stored readings can be downloaded to PosiSoft Desktop software for record keeping and review.
