FUJIFILM PRESCALE® TACTILE PRESSURE
INDICATING SENSOR FILM
Fujifilm Prescale® film is a unique, affordable and easy to use tool that reveals the distribution and magnitude of pressure between any two contacting, mating or impacting surfaces. The pressure indicating sensor film is extremely thin (4 to 8 mils) which enables it to conform to curved surfaces. It is ideal for invasive intolerant environments and tight spaces not accessible to conventional electronic transducers.
How It Works: Fujifilm Prescale® is a mylar based film that contains a layer of tiny microcapsules. The application of force upon the film causes the microcapsules to rupture, producing an instantaneous and permanent high resolution "topographical" image of pressure variation across the contact area.
Simply place Fujifilm Prescale® between any two surfaces that touch, mate or impact. Apply pressure, remove it and immediately the film reveals the pressure distribution profile that occurred between the two surfaces. Like Litmus paper, the color intensity of the film is directly related to the amount of pressure applied to it. The greater the pressure, the more intense the color.
NOTE: Common misspellings of Fujifilm Prescale® include, presscale, pre-scale, pre scale, and Fugi Prescale. These terms are synonymous with our Fujifilm Prescale film.
Fujifilm Prescale® was formerly known as Fuji Prescale®.
