Significance and Use

5.1 As a base for calibration adjustment or accuracy verification of dry film coating thickness measuring instruments.

5.2 The dry film thickness of coatings on wood or wood-based products is specified in written product warranties for proper decorative and protective performance of coatings on wood or wood-based products.

5.3 The minimum and maximum dry film thickness of coatings is recommended by coating companies for satisfactory decorative and protective performance on wood or wood-based products.

5.4 The average dry film thickness of coatings on wood or wood-based material may be used by manufacturing companies to estimate the theoretical cost of applied coatings.

5.5 The ratio of minimum to maximum dry film thickness on textured products is used as an indication of coating uniformity.

5.6 Specific coated product requirements may dictate certain film thickness determinations to be made. Agreement between buyer and seller may be advisable to accommodate product needs relative to dry film thickness.

Scope

1.1 This test method covers the measurement of dry film thickness of coatings applied to a smooth, textured or curved rigid substrate of wood or a wood-based product.

1.2 This test method covers the preparation of wood or wood-based specimens for the purpose of microscopic measurement of dry film thickness.

1.3 This test method suggests an analysis of dry film thickness of coatings on wood or wood-based products using a microscopic measurement.

1.4 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system are not necessarily exact equivalents; therefore, to ensure conformance with the standard, each system shall be used independently of the other, and values from the two systems shall not be combined.

1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.6 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
