Testex Tape / Press-O-Film

Testex Tape / Press-O-Film

Testex Tape is popularly called as Press-O-Film. Press-O-Film provides surface profile of a basted cleaned surface. It can produce virtually exact replicas of the blasted surface profile, which can be measured, using a snap gauge. Testex tapes offers a simple and very accurate method of measuring blasted profiles of surface. 

Testex Tape / Press O Film consists of layer of crushable plastic microfoam coated onto a polyster film of highly uniform thickness.

 


Surface profile gauge or testex tapes can test surface roughness. Most commonly used testex tapes / press o films are popular as it can give permanent record of the surfaces. 

Place the Testex Tape (Press-O-Film) firmly on the blasted surface, apply moderate pressure with the burnishing tool, the replica has now been taken and can be measured using the snap gauge. Testing & Inspection can be done in three easy steps. Detailed procedure is furnished with testex kit or tapes.

Testex Tape is supplied in a roll containing 50 tests and is available in four different grades to cater for different applications. The snap gauge is supplied in a carrying case with a burnishing tool.
