I-Scan Vs Pressure Indicating Film: See How They Compare

What's are the key differences between these two interface pressure testing technologies? This short video explains.

The Difference is in the Data

Pressure film products, like Fujifilm Prescale, are one of the more common methods used for testing interface pressure between two surfaces. When pressure is applied, tiny microbubbles burst within the film to show various degrees of pressure, through color density, that corresponds to the pressure and pressure distribution.

While pressure film products essentially produce a "snap shot" of peak pressure, an I-Scan pressure mapping system offers the luxury of being able to capture dynamic, real-time pressure data that can be viewed throughout the entire testing process.
