Thickness is one of the basic physical properties used to control the quality of many geotextiles and geosynthetics. This equipment is simple to operate and thickness of the geosynthetics/ reinforcing material can be measured with an accuracy of 0.002 mm for thickness upto 10 mm. Accuracy is 0.01 mm for thickness greater than 10 mm. Simple mechanism is provided to apply desired foot pressure varying from 1 to 10 kPa as per various international standards. Surface plate is grounded and is rust free to enable reproducible results.
