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


Selected Answers

From Chuck Pease of MMI Tank on December 10, 2015:
One type of error is neglecting to take readings at edges or corners and bolted connections or fasteners of steel. This is one of the places where NACE inspectors look, as edge retention of coatings tends to be very thin at angles and edges as opposed to other flat surfaces. Use of coatings that have good build properties helps with this condition.

From David Zuskin of Indepedent on December 10, 2015:
One error is failure to calibrate the DFT gauge to the substrate to be measured.
