We have been using the Testex tape and dial indicator to measure and validate the surface roughness of steel. The Testex tape has a maximum working temperature of 150F and we need to measure the surface roughness on a slightly curved surface at temperatures of 300 F. If I use a thin aluminum or brass foil and use rubbing to transfer the profile of the curved surface to the foil, will I get a good reading?
