Technical Data
Scales: Mil - Micron
Dimensions: 4-1/2” x 4-1/2” x 0.32”
Range: 0.4 to 400 mils / 10 to 10,000 μm
Fiberglass lay-up range: 25 to 158 mils
Material: Hard Aluminum
Specifications: Exceeds ASTM D4414
Accuracy: ± 0.25 mils Average (Range 0.4 - 400 mils)

 

Instructions for Use

top
  1. Select scale range ( 25-158 Mil Fiberglass Scale range)
  2. Place gauge on wet film at 90° angle.
  3. Press into film
  4. Withdraw and note deepest tooth or notch having paint on it and next higher tooth that is not coated.
  5. The wet film thickness lies between these two readings.
  6. Clean gauge with any suitable solvent immediately after use. Wipe dry. Do not leave gauge immersed in solvent.
 
For Clear Coatings
To see clear liquids on the teeth, sprinkle them with talc and blow off. Talc will stick to the wet teeth.
Octagon Diagram Example:
The drawing indicates that tooth marked 250 mils is covered with the wet paint and tooth marked 300 mils is not covered. This indicates that the true wet film thickness of the material is between 250 and 300 mils thick.
