Coating Thickness Standards


STDCSS Certified Plastic Shim Set is a set of 8 plastic shims that simulate a coating over a particular substrate material or shape. The shims allow users to check coating thickness gauge performance and help with calibration adjustment.

The shims can also be used to protect the probe from damage or premature wear when placed over hot or abrasive surfaces.

STDCSS includes Calibration Certificate Traceable to PTB.
