MADISON, N.J. (USA) – July 16, 2010 – To spur research and development efforts, Sensor Products Inc. is offering a 10% discount on its versatile Pressurex® pressure-indicating sensor film during this summer. Over the past decade, hundreds of White Papers have been written using the sensor film. Pressurex ® measures surface contact pressures between 2 -- 43,200 PSI (0.14 – 3,000 g/cm2). The 10% discount is available to researchers until November 30, 2010. To receive the discount, researchers must order the film during the registration period and work for an accredited academic institution. A complimentary sample may be obtained by contacting Sensor Products Inc. at 1.973.884.1755 (USA), emailing info@sensorprod.com, or visiting http://www.sensorprod.com/sample.

Pressurex® reveals pressure distribution and magnitude between mating or impacting surfaces. When placed in the interface, the film changes color in direct proportion to the actual pressure applied. The result is an instantaneous and permanent “topographical” image of pressure magnitude and distribution across the contact area. Precise pressure magnitude is easily determined by comparing color variation results to a color correlation chart (conceptually similar to interpreting Litmus paper).

The film is routinely used to trouble shoot assembly problems, aid in research and design, and reveal defects during quality control. It is flexible, conforming to curved as well as straight surfaces and can be hand or laser cut to virtually any size or dimension. New applications for Pressurex® are being discovered daily. Common applications include contact pressure measurement of nip rollers, gasket and bolted joint interfaces, connectors, heat sealers, heat sinks, biomechanics, lamination, wafer polishing and bonding, composite lay up, and plastic molding, to name just a few.

“We are delighted to offer this discount, that we hope will jumpstart new projects” says Jeffrey Stark, president of Sensor Products Inc. “Researchers set the stage for technical development which we fully support.”
