    You specified an elastomeric coating with a dry film thickness of 10 mils (0.25 millimeters). The contractor says that it was applied with a wet film thickness of 15 mils (0.38 millimeters) and that, therefore, the application will be okay. Is the contractor correct?


     

    Question from Last Week:
