Testex Digital Micrometer

Testex® Replica Tape

Testex Replica Tape measures surface profile by creating a replica of the surface, which can be measured using a micrometer

  • Same trusted Coarse and X-Coarse replica foam in new strip format
  • Simple technique: place on the surface, press/burnish it into the surface, remove, and measure
  • Proven technique with accuracy and repeatability validated by numerous independent studies
  • Measure using a precision digital or analog micrometer or electronic PosiTector RTR Replica Tape Reader
  • Less than 30 seconds required for most replicas
  • Only surface profile measurement method recognized by ISO, ASTM, and AMPP

Made in USA flag with black text below

Conforms to ASME B46, ASTM D4417, ISO 8503-5, NACE SP287, SSPC-PA 17, SP5, SP6, SP10, SP11-87T, and others

Features

Simple

  • Simple technique: place on the surface, press/burnish it into the surface, remove, and measure
  • Less than 30 seconds required for most replicas
  • Measure using a precision Digital MicrometerAnalog Micrometer, or PosiTector RTR Replica Tape Reader
  • Ideal for measuring on round surfaces and other challenging locations
