Yes, much, much thicker. The thinner stuff would likely reduce the 
extent of lens pitting, but not help much in regard to breakage 
(large stones, etc.)

There's been much discussion about the fact that for the '91 200 euro 
lens the Stongard design is/was inadequate to cover the entire lens 
surface--they leave the perimeter (approx. 3/8 inch wide) vulnerable 
to breakage. This fact has been brought to their attention, but I'm 
not aware if they've ever acted on the information (or if they even 
cared). Fortunately my euro lenses have survived for 50+ kmiles-- 
without damage (knock on Zebrano)--under Stongard protection.
