Instructions for Use

  1. Place gauge on wet film at 90° angle
  2. Press into film
  3. Withdraw and note deepest tooth having paint on it and next higher tooth that is not coated
  4. The wet film thickness lies between these two readings
  5. Clean gauge in any suitable solvent immediately after use

The drawing indicates that the tooth marked 3 mils has made contact with the wet paint and the tooth marked 4 mils has not. This indicates that the true wet film thickness of the material is between 3 and 4 mils thick.
