for measurements on metals, plastics,
glass, and other thin materials; and 35HP
and 35DL-HP for sound attenuating ma-
terials such as cast metals, thick rubber,
fiberglass, and composites. The 35DL and
35DL-HP add a versatile file-based alpha-

cannot be measured with most other ultrasonic thickness gages.

For more than three decades, we have developed
the HP (High Penetration) series specifically for
very sound-attenuating or thick materials. Not
only can these gages use transducers as low as
0.5 MHz but their electronics (pulser-receiver)
are highly optimized to process signals at these
low frequencies.
The result is that the Panametrics gages have
earned a reputation for superior performance in
measuring thick rubber, fiberglass, composites,
and other tough materials.
