What is Coating Thickness?
Coating thickness or dry film thickness (DFT) is an important variable that plays a role in product quality, process control, and cost control. Measurement of film thickness can be accomplished by selecting the best mil gage for the particular application.
Why Dry Film Thickness Measurement is Important
Dry film thickness (DFT) or coating thickness is arguably the single most important measurement made during the application and inspection of protective coatings. Coatings are designed to perform their intended function when applied within a tight DFT range as specified by the manufacturer. Correct thickness ensures optimum product performance. Even the most basic specification will require DFT to be measured.
The Measure of Quality
Regular film thickness measurement helps control material costs, manage application efficiency, maintain finish quality and ensure compliance with contract specifications. Paint manufacturers recommend target ranges to achieve optimum performance characteristics and clients expect these parameters to be met.
