Calculators

The calculators are provided for reference purposes only. Every coating operation is different and there are many application variables that can and will affect performance. Data from the calculators should be considered a starting point for real-world trials.

This calculator estimates wet film thickness based on thread size. Thread size input is in wire equivalency. Buschman thread sizes are based on imperial wire equivalency (a #10 rod is equivalent to a wire rod with 0.010in wire).

Estimate Thread Size to Wet Film Thickness

This calculator estimates dry coat weight based on thread size. Thread size input is in wire equivalency. Buschman thread sizes are based on imperial wire equivalency (a #10 rod is equivalent to a wire rod with 0.010in wire).

Estimate Dry Coat Weight based on Thread Size
Percent
g/cm³

This calculator estimates the thread size required to achieve a desired wet film thickness. Thread size output is in wire equivalent. Buschman thread sizes are based on imperial wire equivalency (a #10 rod is equivalent to a wire rod with 0.010in wire).
