Certified Thickness Standards

Certified thickness standards are used to verify the accuracy and operation of coating thickness gages and are an important component in fulfilling both ISO and in-house quality control requirements. All standards described below are supplied with a certificate of calibration showing traceability to NIST/NPL.

There are 5 types of coating thickness standards:

Certified Coated Metal Plates

defelsko standards Certified Coated Metal Plates are the best solution for verifying the calibration, accuracy and operation of most magnetic, eddy current or ultrasonic coating thickness gages including magnetic pull-off gages as well as many competitive models. At ±0.43µm (±0.017 mil) Certified Coated Metal Plates are the most accurate solution.

Certified Polystyrene Blocks

defelsko-standards

Certified Polystyrene Blocks are for use with gages that measure over 1500 µm (60 mils).

They have an accuracy of:
±(2.5 µm + 0.05% of thickness)
±(0.1 mil + 0.05% of thickness)

Polystyrene Blocks
Part# of Polystyrene: CT-DF-CALP
Product Codes: STDP1, STDP2, STDP3, STDP4, STDP5, STDP6, STDP7, STDP8

Certified Plastic Shims

defelsko-standards Certified Plastic Shims (foils) provide an economical alternative to coated metal plates. They have a reduced accuracy of ±2 µm (0.08 mil). A coating thickness gage measures shim thickness when the shim is placed over a smooth metal surface (zero plate). Alternatively, they can be placed over an uncoated metal substrate. They are not suitable for use with magnetic pull-off gages.

Non-Certified Plastic Shims

defelsko-standards Non-Certified Plastic Shims (foils) provide a quick operational check of the instrument and they allow the user to perform practice measurements when placed over metal. They are not suitable for use with magnetic pull-off gages.

Non-Certified Shim Set
Product Code: STDSHIMS

Zero Plates

defelsko-standards Zero plates are uncoated steel (1018 steel) or aluminum (6061-T6) disks. A zero plate is included with most coated metel sets. The first gage measurement is on a zero plate to verify the gage measures zero correctly. Electronic gages can usually be adjusted to 0 if necessary. A zero plate is also a convenient base onto which a plastic shim or polystyrene block can be placed for measurement. Plate diameter: 38 mm (1.5").
