A new instrument designed to detect holidays and pinholes in coatings on metal and concrete is available from DeFelsko.

The PosiTest LPD low-voltage pinhole detector is a wet-sponge tool that provides four voltage output options to provide varying degrees of sensitivity and conform with various standards, the manufacturer says. Low-voltage pinhole detectors are typically used for coating systems less than 20 mils thick, DeFelsko notes.

PosiTest LPD

The PosiTest LPD low-voltage pinhole detector is a wet-sponge tool that provides four voltage output options to provide varying degrees of sensitivity.

PosiTest LPD comes with a number of optional hardware and extension accessories to increase the tool’s reach and adapt it to specific situations. DeFelsko offers a basic kit and a complete kit, which includes an additional sponge, roller, extending rods and other accessories.

The tool is waterproof, dustproof and shockproof, and uses three AAA batteries, the company says.

I would have preferred for the schematics to show the ground wire. Folks not familiar with porosity testing might think the inspector just walks up and puts the sponge on the surface.

That's a very astute observation Fred. You should tell that to DeFalsko.
