More About Coating Thickness Gauges

Coating thickness or as it is sometimes otherwise referred as Dry film thickness (DFT) is probably the most important measurement that is made when applying and inspecting protective coatings. Coatings are designed to perform their intended function when applied within a tight DFT range as specified by the manufacturer. Correct thickness guarantees the highest product performance.

Lots of the physical and appearance properties of the completed coating are directly affected by the film thickness including the colour, gloss, surface profile, adhesion, flexibility, impact resistance, and hardness of the coating. The fit of pieces assembled after coating can be affected when film thickness is not within tolerance.
