Unique New Sensor Film Is Ideal For Impact Force Measurement

Quickly Identify and Resolve Surface Contact Stress Problems

Our impact force measurement sensor is a highly accurate, affordable and easy to use thin film that reveals distribution and magnitude of force between any two contacting, mating or impacting surfaces. Also known as Fujifilm Prescale® this impact force measurement sensor has many effective applications including use in analyzing bolted joint and gasketed interfaces, composite layups, heat sealers and lamination presses. It can also be used as a crash test sensor, seat pressure sensor, as a strain gauge or even as nip impression paper.

Fujifilm Prescale® is a Mylar-based film that contains a layer of tiny microcapsules. Force exerted on this impact force measurement sensor causes the microcapsules to rupture, producing via color change an instantaneous and permanent high resolution topographical image of force variation across the contact area. Simply place the sensor film between any two surfaces, apply force, remove it, and immediately it reveals a profile of interfacial pressure distribution. Similar in concept to Litmus paper, the impact force measurement sensor film’s color change is also proportionally quantifiable to the amount of force applied. The film is extremely thin (4 to 8 mils) which enables it to conform to curved surfaces and is also ideal for invasive intolerant environments and tight spaces not accessible to conventional electronic transducers.

Benefits of Using Fujifilm Prescale® Sensor Film

  • Reveals parallelism
  • Reveal gaps, flaws and unevenness
  • Indicates consistent compressive force across interfacing surfaces
  • Determines precisely how force is distributed at your contacting surfaces
  • Quantifies exactly how much force is occurring
