Strain Gage Installation Tape
In this video, Darryl and Tom demonstrate the importance of choosing the right installation tape for handling strain gages, and discuss why it is not recommended to use just any PTFE tape, masking tape, or cellophane tape to transfer the strain gage on the work surface. Eliminating the possibility of contamination and/or gage damage is the primary objective.
