The top plates differ in the length of their tiny supports so that different angles are formed between the top plates and the base plate. A wedge angle constant (K) is given to each top plate. These range from the smallest angle K=0.002 to K=0.0035, K=0.004, K=0.007 and the largest K=0.007, the popular constant being K=0.004 and K=0.008 is simple to use and accurately perform testing of wet film hiding power.
