PosiTest®

Magnetic Coating Thickness Gages for Non-Magnetic Coatings on Steel. PosiTest magnetic pull-off thickness gage (banana gauge) for the non-destructive measurement of non-magnetic coatings (paint, enamel, galvanizing, metalizing, plating, etc.) on steel.

The PosiTest provides superior accuracy and improved ease-of-use by using a large dial to increase spring pressure, and by holding the displayed gage reading after being removed from the coated part. The PosiPen is ideal for small, hot or hard-to-reach surfaces.
