Elcometer 122 Testex® Tape consists of foam with a non-compressible backing. The foam side is rubbed into the surface providing a permanent mould of the peak-to-valley profile. The profile of the surface can then be measured using the Elcometer 124 Thickness Gauge.
Elcometer 122 Testex® Replica Tape is available in four profile ranges. It is important that the tape grade chosen is reflective of the profile being measured.
- For profiles between 12 & 25µm (0.5 & 1.0mils): Coarse Minus Tape
For profiles between 20 & 64µm (0.8 & 2.5mils): Coarse Tape
For profiles between 38 & 115µm (1.5 & 4.5mils): X-Coarse Tape
For profiles between 116 & 127µm (4.6 & 5.0mils): X-Coarse Plus Tape
- There are 50 tests in each Replica Tape roll.
