PROTECTION OF MATERIALS. DETERMINATION OF THE THICKNESS OF DRY PAINT FILMS APPLIED TO STEEL PARTS OF STRUCTURES AND ROLLING STOCK
It is now widely accepted that there is a direct relationship between the thickness of a paint film and its durability, and it has become the practice to specify the paint film thickness required. The means adopted to measure the film thickness of a paint have been studied by the Committee E17a. The present report contains a leaflet dealing with a standard method for determining the dry paint film thickness on steel surfaces. As a sufficient paint film thickness is of vital importance for the protection of a steel surface, and as the results obtained by measurements often give rise to difference of opinion as regards the real values obtained, a standard method for the determination of the dry paint film thickness has been formulated. This method is intended to be applied in all leaflets where a recommended dry paint film thickness is given.
