Overview

DeFelsko Corporation, a leading U.S. Manufacturer of coating thickness gages and inspection instruments, has been delivering Simple, Durable and Accurate gages since 1965. Family owned and operated in Northern New York, its state of the art facility houses research, development, manufacturing, quality, sales, training and service departments.

Over the years, DeFelsko has pioneered many technologies including:

  • the first combination ferrous/non-ferrous gage to automatically recognize the substrate and take a measurement
  • the first hand-held ultrasonic coating thickness gage for non-metal substrates including plastic, wood, and concrete
  • the first fully-interchangeable inspection instrument, featuring compatibility with coating thickness, dew point, surface profile, soluble salt, ultrasonic wall thickness and hardness probes
  • the first ISO-compliant salt contamination measurement method, with no sharps or adhesive
  • the first hand-held, field-ready instrument for 3D-imaging of blasted surfaces and measurement of peak density and other variables
  • Starting with the mechanical PosiTest FM and GM, DeFelsko has shown a commitment to excellence in manufacturing and after sales support. 

DeFelsko actively participates in several key organizations (SSPC, NACE, ASTM, ISO) to improve and promote the science of coating inspection. DeFelsko is recognized as a premier American manufacturer of quality inspection instruments.
