The consistent liquid enamel slip properties is a critical parameter at any automated wet application process.
Unfortunately enamel rheology is known to change easily under the influence of particle size, specific weight, temperature, milling additives and/or pretreatment chemicals.
Failure to maintain its properties within measurable tolerances, may result in inconsistent enamel layer thickness and eventually even enamel defects.
Do you really believe that you can “feel it” with your fingers as demonstrated on the picture below, or do you rather prefer a more
precise testing method ?!

With ultrasonic thickness measurement, you may detect the thickness of individual layers within a multi layer coating.
This may be of great help, when troubleshooting e.g. a two coats / one fire vitreous enameling process.
