Profile Measurement

BlastOne offers multiple tools that take different approaches to measure the profile of a blasted steel surface. They are simple to use and require minimal or straightforward calibration for accuracy.

These profile measurement tools are able to detect the profile achieved on a newly-blasted surface. Typically, these profile measurements (measured in mils) are specified by the coating manufacturer.

  • The PosiTector BHI - DeFelsko's solution for measuring hardness on hard plastics and soft metals, such as aluminum, copper, brass, and more.  

    • Familiar.  The BHI probe is interchangeable and compatible with the tried-and-true PosiTector instrument platform.  It is available as a package with either the Standard or the Advanced Gage/Body, or as a probe-only.
    • Specialized.  Compares to the 934-1 Barcol Hardness Tester.
    • Capable.  Numerous advantages over conventional analog instruments (as well as competitive digital instruments) including:
      • Memory.  Enhances convenience and reliability of reporting by saving readings for archiving or reporting.
      • Reporting options.  The PosiTector BHI includes the PosiSoft suite of software for viewing and reporting.
      • Test Time.  To improve accuracy when testing some materials that continue to deform during the test, the PosiTector Barcol Hardness Impressor offers on-board elapsed time setting capability.  

    Note:  The PosiTector BHI is factory calibrated. A glass zero-plate is included in the BHI package for use when replacing the indentor, compensating for wear, etc.  A full listing of items included in the probe kit is shown on the brochure under the documents tab.

Producing the proper surface profile on a blasted metal surface is important with corrosion control process because it ensures the protective coating’s longevity on structural steel.

If the surface profile doesn’t have an adequate peak-valley height, it may not be able to provide a proper anchor for the coating. This can cause the coating to bubble up or fail prematurely. If there is too large a profile (higher peaks and lower valleys on the steel surface), it will require a greater amount of paint to cover the surface without any noticeable roughness.
