PosiTest® PC

Non-contact Uncured Powder Thickness Gage. Positest PC affordably measures uncured powder coatings using non-contact ultrasonic technology to predict a cured thickness.

Coatings must be applied within certain minimum and maximum dry film thickness specifications. But waiting to measure coating thickness after curing can result in product waste and production delays. Accurate measurement at the time of application that eliminates over usage, improves quality, controls set-up, reduces rework & waste, and saves money!


The PosiTest PC has been completely redesigned as a dedicated stand-alone unit and is now part of the PosiTest family of instruments. No PosiTector gage body required.

New Features:
- Up to 4x faster measurement speed for moving lines and swinging parts
- Improved sensor technology allows easier measurement on small tubes, odd shapes and moving parts
- Ergonomic, one-handed unit is ready to measure right out of the box
- Storage of 999 readings with onscreen averaging. Stored readings can be downloaded to PosiSoft Desktop software.
- Scan Mode continuously takes measurements — ideal for analyzing large areas
- Easy-to-read digital display with simple, icon based menu
- Target Grid simultaneously displays distance to the part and alignment, making measurements easy
- Range: 20 to 100 µm (0.8 – 4.0 mils)
- Easy 1 and 2 point calibration adjustment options with Cal Reset to improve accuracy on unusual powders or substrates. No calibration adjustment required for most powders.
- USB Keyboard Mode emulates keystrokes to easily stream readings to a PC or PLC
