Waterloo, ON, May 4, 2016 –  Amongst the multi-billion-dollar plastic container industry, measurement solutions company, TeTechS Inc., has developed a technology to become a revolutionizing player. PlasThick™, a multi-layer thickness measurement system, has emerged out of the company’s core terahertz technology as the answer to current measurement challenges facing the plastic industry.

The ability to effectively detect and measure individual layers, including barrier layers, within multi-layer plastic bottles and containers is an essential step to ensure consistent product quality. However current techniques are highly destructive, contact based and time-consuming.

TeTechS’ PlasThick™ is a fast, non-contact, non-destructive solution that quickly measures the individual layer thickness of plastic bottles and containers. The only solution on the market that can measure both opaque and translucent plastics, PlasThick™ boasts high-precision in conducting measurements of up to 10 layers ranging in thickness from 0.01mm to 5mm in a matter of seconds.

PlasThick™ not only enables users to effectively determine individual layer thickness but allows them to locate and measure the costly, ultra-thin barrier layer within multi-layer structures. PlasThick™ is powered by TeTechS’ core terahertz platform technology, TeraGauge™, rendering it capable of integration into off-line, at-line, or in-line systems at manufacturing facilities.
