Area: Selected coated
galvanized pipe for testing.

Comments: Fixing of pull-off


stubs or dollies on 3 locations
on one of the selected coated
pipes. Dry film thickness
(DFT) measurements were
carried out with an Elcometer
Model 456 paint thickness
gauge. The measured DFT
readings were inclusive of the
galvanizing coating thickness.
