For example, if the ratio is 50:50 or 50%, then a wet film thickness of 100 microns will have a dry film thickness of 50 microns, once the volatile components have evaporated.
All of the aforementioned data was entered into a statistical software program to characterize the effect of polyol combination, tail solvent, and dry film thickness on 20 [degrees] gloss, DOI, and nine-day pendulum hardness.
For the larger type H panels, the researchers identified three areas on each panel that would be coated with varying dry film thicknesses. The majority of each type II panel was coated according to the dry film thickness recommended by the manufacturer.
An operating window for drying of polyimide film, which defines the operating region of producing smooth dry film, was experimentally constructed in terms of drying temperature against dry film thickness. The maximum film thickness is limited by several drying defects such as orange peel and various degrees of blisters.

Standard test method for nondestructive measurement of dry film thickness of applied organic coatings using an ultrasonic gage.
The data show (Figure 12) that for films aged at 21[degrees]C, when 20 percent of the ammonium acrylate salt is left in the film (dry film thickness, 1.5 microns), then optimal wet-tape adhesion occurs.
The product was spray-applied at 110 mils dry film thickness. Surface cracks received an extra 30 mils.
Certified to the ANSI/NSF 61 Standard, the intermediate coat was applied at five to six mils dry film thickness in a light blue color.
The regular dry film thickness of 60 microns as applied by Eupec reduces the friction of the gas flow to the pipe wall, thus increasing the pipeline throughput.
The level of permeability is dictated by both the type and amount of refractory materials that are used in the coating formula and the dry film thickness deposit on the core.
Daystrom applies the clearcoat to the entire solid wood table, including top and base, to a dry film thickness of 4 to 5 mils using conventional low-pressure spray equipment.
