Sensor Film Measures/Maps Very Low Contact Pressure

The latest addition to the company’s tactile pressure-indicating sensor films, Pressurex Zero, characterizes contact surface pressure down to 7.2 psi. Reportedly, it is an easy-to-use flexible film that fits between contacting or mating surfaces to instantly and accurately measure and map pressure magnitude and distribution. Variations in contact surface pressure are visible by the impression made on the film. The full range of the film is 7.2 psi to 28 psi. Pressurex is available in eight different pressure ranges and comes in the form of a thin clear plastic sheet (4 or 8 mil) that is physically similar in appearance to paper. Fit between contacting surfaces, it permanently changes color directly proportional to the applied pressure and users determine precise pressure magnitude by comparing color-variation results to a color correlation chart.
