Germa-Tech recommends that when a paint finish reaches a dry film thickness of 300 microns and above, it should either be removed completely, or sanded back to an allowable tolerance which when refinished will not exceed the allowable limit of 300 micron.



Excessive paint film thickness can cause durability problems such as:

  • Cracking

  • Excessive stone chipping

  • Loss of gloss

  • Sinkage

  • Pickling

  • Delamination



Dry film build measures the coating thickness of the cured total paint layer and is measured in microns (µm) or in mil.


A Micron is one thousandth of a Millimetre 


Various equipment manufacturers produce paint film thickness gauges, of varying quality and cost. These gauges are very simple and easy to use.


As part of the initial inspection of a vehicle, prior to paint repair, it should be standard practice to check the paint film thickness and on completion of the repair the final thickness should again be recorded and detailed on a job card.


OEM - Original Equipment Manufacturer’s paint finish, is typically 90-10 micron. The thickness of a strand of human hair is ~150 Microns.



Applying coatings in excess of the 300 micron tolerance will void any current or future warranty claims.  At Germa-Tech we are here to help, as soon as you record a coating beyond tolerance, please contact us immediate and we will discuss and appropriate action plan to protect or rework you coating.

Important - please note

All terms and conditions noted are without exception (subject to change without notice).
