Measure Thin Films

Measure Thin Plastic Film and Coatings

Simply the best products on the market for gauging thin plastic film

SolveTech’s proprietary capacitance based technology measures thin films with higher accuracy and repeatability than anything else on the market.

We offer both on-line and off-line systems for measuring thin plastic film.  We can handle films with a total thickness down to 0.1 mils (2.5 micron).  Have an application you would like to discuss?  We have had customers who thought their film would be impossible to measure and we have delivered results.

“Advanced technologies continue to move toward miniaturization requiring thinner materials (films) to meet demanding market needs.  PolymerPlus is uniquely positioned to deliver high precision nanolayer films as thin as 0.1 mil thick for optical and electronic applications.  We needed a gauging solution that could handle our high precision layered films while avoiding issues associated with alternative gauging approaches including optical reflection or x-ray based techniques.  We found that solution with SolveTech’s PR2000, and it helped us create market leading thin film solutions”-Mike Ponting, PolymerPlus.

Off line, we offer a repeatable precision of +/- 0.001 mils (0.025 micron).  On the line, we offer repeatable precision to 0.01 or 0.25 for many applications.  With special gauge designs, we can achieve an even higher level of repeatable precision.  To see the precision for yourself, you can send us sample of your thin film for testing.

Products for the Lab

Measure Plastic Sheet

The PR2000 Precision Profiler

Laboratory Thickness Gauging for Thin Plastic Films

Learn more about the lab gauge that is the must have for a thin film producer or processor.  This gauge is precise to +/- 25 nanometers (1 millionth of an inch), and can be used on films as thin as 2.5 microns (0.1 mils) while handling thicker films up to 250 microns (10 Mils).  It quickly delivers a profile of your blown film bubble or cast film web.

The SC1000 SpotChecker

The SC1000 measures the thickness of thin films, and it can be used to measure material that is extremely difficult to handle.

It is also great for scouting a sheet of material if you can not cut it into strips.
