Coating weight of adhesives, lacquers, coatings, hotmelts;cold seal

gravimetric determination according FhG Merkblatt 11 Teil 1, results in [g/m²] Note: The application weight of the cured reactive adhesives- or laquer systems (e.g. polyurethane laminating adhesive in composite films or epoxylaqueres) mostly can not be determined, because the method works only by removability of the layer to be tested, e.g. by dissolving under usage of solvents. We recommend an orienting light microscopic measurement of the adhesive or lacquer layer thickness by means of a microtome cross section in such cases.
