Using low velocity wedge material such as ACE™ provides a good velocity ratio resulting in less beam distortion. The higher refracted beams can be generated with lower incident angles. 35.4° incidence produces a 60° refracted angle in HDPE (Vel. 2330m/s) and a useful lateral wave can be obtained even with a 5MHz probe.
