What two organizations recently worked cooperatively to revise their standards on measuring dry film thickness of coatings?


True or False: Testing standards for measuring dry film thickness of coatings (SSPC, IMO, ISO, and AS) are remarkably similar in their requirements for sampling and the number of measurements that have to be taken.

What type of gages are used to measure the dry film thickness of coatings on concrete?


True or false: SSPC has a standard for measuring dry film thickness of paint over concrete substrates.
