The PosiTector Replica Tape Reader (RTR) is a hand-held electronic instrument that measures burnished TestexTM Press-O-FilmTM replica tape to produce peak-to-valley surface profile height measurements.
It consists of a body (Standard or Advanced) and probe. This digital spring micrometer measures and records peak to valley surface profile height using replica tape.
Replica Tape provides a simple way to obtain an impression of a surface for analysis. It consists of a layer of crushable plastic micro foam affixed to a 50.8 μm incompressible polyester film. When compressed against a roughened surface, the foam collapses and acquires an impression, or reverse replica, of the surface. It is available in a number of grades to accommodate measurements in different profile ranges.
Placing the compressed tape (replica) into the PosiTector RTR gives a measure of the average maximum peak-to-valley height of the surface roughness profile.
