Coating thickness

How the material is used, the drying speed, adhesion and, in part, the mechanical and chemical properties of the lacquer film as well all depend on the coating thickness. The thickness of the dry coat is obtained from the thickness of the wet coat and the solids content of the coating (100 m at 50% solids content gives a dry coat thickness of 50 m). The thickness of the wet coat is determined with a 'wet coat thickness measurer', and the thickness of the dry coat with a micrometer in m = micron
