Standard deviation is useful in providing data on thickness consistency during application. (ii) State the DFT measurement standard used ie SSPC-PA 2 (iii) State the calibration method ie "calibrated on smooth disc with no correction factor for blast profile" (iv) Record the blast profile data (v) State the DFT instrument used and include a copy of the Calibration Certificate.
