wet film thickness gauge


Explanation:
Haßkamm / Nasskamm turned out to be a toughie. The only thing that turned up on AltaVista or Northern Light was a mountain in the Steyermark. The illustration on these Web pages strongly suggest that this is what is meant, assuming that the coating is measured when still wet , not after it's set. (You do provide very little context). -- Keywords used on AltaVista:>>> +"coating thickness gage" +wet <<<
