Wet Film Thickness Gages

Wet Film Thickness gage

Measuring the film thickness immediately after coating the surface is important to control the spreading rate and the final dry film thickness. Applying too much paint is an added expense without improving the physical properties of the coating. Wet film thickness should be monitored frequently to maintain an efficient coating process. A wet film thickness gage is an inexpensive, easy to use device. They cover a wide wet film thickness range from industrial maintenance applications to thin coil coatings. Wet film gages can be used on virtually every substrate.

Comb Type Gages

Inmont Film Gage

BYK-Gardner comb gages come in different thickness ranges and a choice of stainless steel or plastic construction.
Interchemical thickness gages are also called IC gages or Inmont gages, ideal for thin film applications, popular with measuring wet ink film at the press.
