Where are errors most likely to occur when measuring dry film thickness on steel, and how can they be avoided?


Selected Answers

From Steve Brunner of WPC Technologies on April 19, 2021:
There are several opportunities for errors in measuring dry film thickness on steel. Perhaps the most common is not calibrating the measuring device to the same profile as the uncoated steel. This is often not feasible, so similar calibration base metals should be made. The other major error is curvature of parts will affect readings. Again, when possible, calibrate the meter with a shim of the same curvature as the part.
