A film thickness gauge comes really handy while you are painting anything, be it your walls, metal furniture etc. A wet gauge helps to measure the thickness of any layer of painting or protective material. It is the only potential way of assessing it. Proper measurement of the depth and regularity of the coat of paint is obviously necessary to us. This will guarantee that the entire work is carried out well and there is no drawback or shortcoming that may present unpleasant surprises in front of us in near future. There are certain steps that should be followed as the measurements are taken using the film thickness gauge. This will ensure that there are no loopholes in your measurement. Firstly, a coat of paint is applied which is called the initial layer of stain. Thereafter, the film thickness gauge should be held strongly to the wall making an angle of ninety degree. This will be ensured by verifying that whether both the ends of the gauge are in contact with the coat of paint. After the gauge is taken out, the edge should be observed clearly.. The brush should be a new one, free from any old stain, debris or other such substances that may degrade the quality of work.

Then certain precautions should be taken while the work is going on. The measurement with the film thickness gauge should be taken within five to ten minutes of applying the paint. The reading taken may damage the surface if the paint is a bit denser. So you need to keep it in its proper its concentration or take the reading from another identical sample.
