Description

A precision stainless steel Wet Film Thickness Gauge designed to quickly and easily measure the thickness of coatings immediately after they have been applied to a substrate. Wet Film thicknesses from 30 Mil to 120 Mil (0.030" to 0.120") may be measured with this gauge. These gauges are also commonly known as: Combs, MIL Gauges, Step Gauges and Notched Gauges. Wet Film Thickness Gauges are also available CERTIFIED, please 'Click Here' for full information.

The Wet Film Thickness Gauge will measure the wet film thickness of most organic coatings including paints, resins, lacquers, varnishes, gel coat, etc.. The thickness of powder type coatings may also be measured before curing with these gauges.

The wet film thickness (WFT) of a coating determines the dried film thickness (DFT) of the coating on the substrate after it has cured. It is important that the correct amount of coating is applied to a substrate to ensure that the specified dried film thickness is achieved. The appropriate wet film thickness for a specified dry film thickness is easily calculated. 'Click Here' for a listing of formulas.

Applying the correct amount of coating onto most substrates is important. This can be easily verified when the coating is applied by taking measurements of the wet film thickness with this gauge. Consistency of coatings, application methods, thinners/reducers required, etc. may be corrected at the time of application which avoids costly rework. Eliminate defects caused by incorrect dry film thickness, cracking, wrinkling, blisters, etc.. For a given coating the variables of wet film thickness, dried film thickness and amount of thinner/reducer required may be easily calculated. 'Click Here' to view the various formulas and calculations.

This Wet Film Thickness Gauge measures the wet film thickness from 30 mils to 120 mils (0.030" to 0.120") and is quick, easy and simple to use even in unusual and demanding locations. For full instructions with measurement examples, drawings and complete gauge specifications please 'Click Here'.

The gauge is precision manufactured from hardened grade 301 stainless steel, all markings and graphics are etched and black filled. This gauge will survive harsh use, the graphics will not rub off (even sanding the part will not remove the markings, graphics, etc.). This gauge is not designed as a 'throw-away' item and should not be compared to gauges that are 'printed' or silk-screened.

The overall size of the gauge is 2.234" x 1.500" x 0.030" (56.74mm x 38.10mm x 0.76mm). Each gauge has ten different measurement notches on the top and bottom numbered as shown in the picture above.

Other notch - mil sizes available on request. Please contact GEI with your requirements.

These gauges meet the requirements of the following International Standards:

ISO 2808-7B, ASTM D4414-A, BS 3900-C5 Method 7B, NF T30-125.
