This Wet Film Thickness Gauge is an important tool to measure the depth of paint and coatings applied to substrates to ensure the correct thicknesses are applied.
When applying paint or coatings to substrates, this tool should be embeded in the paint to measure the depth of the coating. This is extremely important when applying intumescent paint coatings as their performance is dependant upon the correct thickness of paint being applied to the steelwork. This wet film thickness is calculated by the intumescent specialist at Promain. Some products will have predetermined WFT's that are published on the manufacturers product data sheet.
Press gauge into the wet coating. Withdraw the tool vertically and note the deepest tooth with paint on it and the next highest tooth that is not coated with paint. The true wet film thickness lies between these two readings. Clean gauge with a suitable solvent after each use to ensure correct readings.
For WFT requirements, please refer to the individual paints and coatings data sheet prior to use.
