wet film thickness gauge

Hawk's Wet Film Thickness Gauge is an inexpensive, precision made gauge designed for on-the-job measurements of the wet film thickness of applied paints. The gauge is versatile as it can measure, with a relatively small footprint, wet paints on objects of practically any size and shape.

Accuracy within 2%!

Wet Film Thickness Gauge

Paint failures can start anywhere, but most
frequently occur in corners and edges where the paint film is either too thin or too thick. When the paint film is too thin, coverage is poor, and loss of hiding and essential protective characteristics are the result. When the paint film is too thick, it tends to sag and crack, defacing the film and causing premature paint failure. Overall estimates of film thickness are readily made, but are often inaccurate. Such errors can result in waste of time, money, and materials, and the job has to be done over.

However, the wet film thickness can be readily measured with Hawk’s Wet Film Thickness Gauge. Such measurements are important to check the rate of paint application, thereby controlling the ultimate film thickness, and assuring a proper paint job. This gauge, in all likelihood, will pay for itself on just one job.
