DeFelsko took home the Product Showcase Award at COATING 2012, which took place Oct. 8–11 at The Americas Center in downtown St. Louis, Mo. The manufacturer of coating thickness devices edged out more than 20 COATING 2012 exhibitors that took part in the Powder Coating Institute’s annual awards program.

DeFelsko’s award-winning product was the PosiTector 6000 Coating Thickness Gage. The unit accepts all DPM, SPG and UTG probes, easily converting from a coating thickness gage to a dew point meter, surface profile gage or ultrasonic wall thickness gage.

The Product Showcase display featured products launched in the last 12 months. Visit the Powder Coating Institute’s website for more information on the showcase contest or the COATING show in general.
