Fujifilm's measurement film solutionEasily measuring pressure, heat and UV light with film.

Pressure measurement filmPrescale

This is the only film in the world that can measure pressure.
Pressure and pressure distribution, which could not be visually observed in the past, can now be easily confirmed.

Prescale allows you to easily measure pressure balance, distribution, and size. Created using Fujifilm's advanced thin film coating technologies, the pressure inspection sensor on the entirety of the film allows you to confirm pressure distribution of the entire surface at a glance. The color appears red where pressure is applied, and the color density varies according to the amount of pressure. To cover a wide pressure range (0.006 to 300 MPa), we supply eight types and nine variations of Prescale.

Pressure measurement filmPrescale Sheets

Prescale Sheets make pressure measurement more readily accessible.

Prescale Sheets are a version of Prescale that are pre-cut into easy-to-use sizes. It is recommended for first-time users and for small-scale applications. To cover a wide pressure range (0.2 to 300 MPa), we supply six types of Prescale Sheets.

We supply eight types and nine variations of Prescale and six types of Prescale Sheets for use depending on the pressure range.
Each product is made for a certain pressure range (MPa). Customers must confirm the pressure value of their application environment.

<How to calculate pressure value (MPa)>
1 MPa = 1 N/mm2 ≈ 10.2 kgf/cm2

To obtain the pressure value, you need the mass (kg) or newtons (N), as well as the surface area (mm2 or cm2).
For instance, if 100 kg is applied on a 100 mm2 (1 cm2) surface, the calculation is 100 kgf/cm2.
Divide this value by 10.2. The formula is 100 kgf/cm2 / 10.2 = 9.8 MPa.

Pressure distribution mapping systemFPD-8010E

Sharing detailed analyses and data is possible using the Pressure distribution mapping system.

The Pressure distribution mapping system FPD-8010E makes it possible to take color samples produced by pressure using Prescale and Prescale Sheets, and to perform various methods of analysis more precisely. By visualizing pressure and performing analysis on a PC, the potential applications are infinite—from designing and developing various products to improving production equipment and conducting maintenance.
