Elcometer 122 Testex® Replica Tape

The Elcometer 122 Testex® Replica Tape is designed to provide a permanent mould of the surface profile, which can then be measured using a thickness gauge.

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 surface profiles between 12 & 25µm (0.5 & 1.0mils): Coarse Minus Tape
  • For surface profiles between 20 & 38µm (0.8 & 1.5mils): Coarse Tape
  • For surface profiles between 38 & 64µm (1.5 & 2.5mils): Average of Coarse and X-Coarse Tape
  • For surface profiles between 64 & 115µm (2.5 & 4.5mils): X-Coarse Tape
  • For surface profiles greater than 115µm (4.5mils): X-Coarse Plus Tape

There are 50 tests in each Replica Tape roll.

Measuring surface profile using the Elcometer 122 Replica Tape & Elcometer 124 Thickness Gauge

The Elcometer 122 Replica Tape, when used in conjunction with the Elcometer 124 Thickness Gauge, provides an ideal method for measuring surface profile in compliance with International Standards. With four variants of the replica tape available, the Elcometer 122 is ideal for inspecting different surface profiles of flat, curved or hard to reach areas.
