The PCWI Compact Holiday Detector is a High Voltage DC Porosity detector also known as holiday detectors, spark testers, porosimeters or jeepers. These are used to ensure the longevity of coating systems by locating pin holes, air bubbles, and porosity in non-conductive coatings on conductive substrates, including concrete.

Conforms to: ASTM G62-2007, NACE RP0274-2004, NACE SP0490-2007, NACE SP0188-2006, ASTM D4787-2008 ANSI/AWWA C214-2007, ANSI/AWWA C213-2007, ISO 2746:1998 & AS3894.1-2002
