Replica Tape Reader to Measure and Record 2D/3D Surface Profile Parameters
Digital spring micrometers measure and record surface profile parameters using Testex Press-O-Film™ replica tape.
Automatically subtracts the 50.8 μm (2 mil) incompressible film from all readings
Minimizes inspector workload by reducing the number of replicas needed to ensure accuracy. See linearized peak height (HL)
Surface Profile Gages for Blasted Steel, Textured Coatings and Concrete Profile
Digital depth micrometer measures and records peak to valley surface profile heights
Solvent, acid, oil, water, and dust resistant –...
Steel is often abrasive-blast cleaned or otherwise roughened prior to painting. The peak-to-valley height of the resultant "surface profile" is a critical and determining factor in the performance of applied paint and other protective coatings. A surface profile height that is too low may reduce coating bond strength (adhesion). Too high and the peaks may receive insufficient coverage leading to premature rusting, and often require additional paint (and labor costs to apply it) to cover the anchor profile.
Emerging research over the past 15 years has shown surface profile height is not the only important parameter. Peak density (also known as peak count), the number of peaks in the surface profile per unit area, has been shown to be a strong determinant of coating adhesion and resistance to corrosion. In fact, studies have found that peak density may be a better predictor of coating performance than peak-to-valley height.
Surface profile height can also be relevant for other industries, as a way to quantify the profile height of non-skid surfaces, and to evaluate the Concrete Surface Profile (CSP) prior to applying coatings on concrete.
Surface Profile Gages use a digital depth micrometer fitted with a fine pointed probe to measure and record peak-to-valley surface profile eights in preparation for the application of coatings.

Yes you can, you would need the SPGOS probe to do so.
No it does not, you would need to purchase a pit depth gauge for this.
