Small-sized Waterproof Foil Strain Gages
The KFWS series foil strain gages are small-sized waterproof gages suitable for outdoor or underwater strain measurement where gage bonding space is limited. The waterproofing resin is as thin as 1.3 mm, making them flexible enough to be bonded to a curved surface of 10 mm diameter.
