Fuji Paper

The term Fuji Paper refers to the proprietary inkjet paper technology produced by FujiFilm Global. Fuji Paper is used for printing photos on inkjet printers. The term Fuji Paper is also associated with Fujifilm Prescale®, which is a tactile pressure indicating sensor film distributed by Sensor Products, Inc.

Other terms related to Fuji Paper include: Fujifilm Prescale® Film, Fuji Pressure Film, and Fuji Pressure Paper.

Fujifilm Prescale® 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. 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.

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 and then remove it. 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

pressure indicating film

Fujifilm Prescale® has a wide array of uses. For example, Fujifilm Prescale® can be used in a bolted joint interface, composite layup, heat sealing and lamination or press. Our pressure indicating film acts as a force sensing resistor. It can measure surface pressure distribution whether it is used as an impact force sensor, a seat pressure sensor, a strain gauge, or as nip impression paper.
