Elcometer 270 Pinhole Detector Inspector's Kit

The Elcometer 270 Pinhole Detectors Inspection Kit utilises the wet sponge technique and has been designed to set a new standard for wet sponge detectors - a high quality, low voltage detector with similar accessories to a high voltage spark tester.

The Inspector’s Kit does not include the main instrument; simply add the model number to the order.

An Introduction to Pinholes and Holidays – Porosity Detection

A flaw in the coating can leave the substrate poorly protected, or in some cases completely exposed.
