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
||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.
Set of Coated Ferrous Plates
Part# for Epoxy on Steel: CT-DF-CALS
Product Codes: STDS, STDS2, STDS3
Set of Coated Non-Ferrous Plates

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

Certified Plastic Shims
||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.
Certified Plastic Shim Set

Non-Certified Plastic Shims
||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 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").
