Becker Acroma Interior Wood Finishes Film Thickness Guidelines

 Assumption:  “One Coat” is generally considered to comprise two passes, one art right angles to the other.

 Dry Film thickness of completed coating (including any seal coat or Surfacer coat and assuming scuff sanding between each coat):

 Becker Clear Coats:

            Recommended dry film thickness range of 2.5 to 6.0 mils

 Becker Matador “System’ maximum 7.0 mils

Recommended dry film thickness range of 2.5 to maximum 7.0 mils

Wet Film Thickness “Equivalence”

One wet coat should not exceed 6 mils

To get to approximately 2.5 dry mils of clear coat, you need, say, two wet coats of 5 mils each.  In other words, 2.5 dry mils = 10 wet mills.
