How to use a Wet Film Comb

The Elcometer Wet Film Combs are easy to use and available in a variety of scales to meet different film thickness needs. When applying a liquid coating, by measuring the uncured film thickness, it is possible to determine the eventual dry film thickness, ensuring high quality finish with minimal waste.
