Significance and Use
3.2 The accuracy and precision of the thickness measurements may be influenced by the deformability of the coating. This test method is not applicable to coatings that are readily deformable under the load of the measuring instrument.
1.1 This test method covers the measurement of film thickness of dried films of paint, varnish, lacquer, and related products using micrometers. Procedures A and B utilize stationary micrometers and Procedures C and D, hand-held micrometers. Procedures A and C are not recommended for films less than 12.5 μm (0.5 mils) in thickness. The minimum thickness required for Procedures B and D is a function of that required to enable removal of the sample as a free film.
