How Prescale Digital Analysis Works

Prescale™ pressure indicating film measures contact pressures as low as 7.25 psi up to pressures as high as 43,500 psi.  When pressure is applied, tiny microbubbles burst within the film to show the various degrees of pressure, through color density, that corresponds to the pressure and pressure distribution.
