METAL COATING THICKNESS TESTING

Quality improvement with cost reduction is the aim of large MNCs and small companies. This fact is true for almost every category. In the industrial sector, as almost every metal is covered with some coating or the other, it is interesting how metal coating helps in tightening tolerances.

Metal coatings are an essential component for protecting the objects from corrosion and other damages. The correct coating makes the parts function well and for a longer period of time, reducing the cost eventually. The process can be done by using different instruments and methods but before initiating the process, it is necessary to understand the instrument being used.

The factors responsible for determining the best method to be used are type of coating, substrate material, size and shape of the object, and the cost of the object. Common methods used are magnetic, eddy current, cross-sectioning, x-ray etc.

Magnetic Gauges

Suitable for measuring coating thickness on steel and iron objects, this method is used to measure the thickness of a nonmagnetic coating. One out of these two principles is used: electromagnetic induction or magnetic pull off.

Eddy Currents

Suitable for measuring the coatings on non-ferrous objects, this method measures the thickness of a non-conductive coating. Most gauges now include magnetic and eddy current principles.

Cross-Sectioning

In this method, the object is cut open (cross-sectionally) and the thickness of the coating is then measured microscopically.

Our Finishes and Services

Zinc Electroplating

Zinc Electroplating provides corrosion resistance to the steel component by acting as a barrier and a sacrificial coating.

 

Zinc Nickel

Zinc nickel plating offers incredibly high corrosion protection and more wear resistance in moving parts that generate intense friction.

Barrel Nickle Plating

Barrel nick plating is essential for applications where corrosion protection is mandatory.

Florentine Bronze

Florentine Bronze is a very versatile finish which can be applied to every metal to give them a ‘raw’ finish and add a protective layer of coating.

Pickle & Oil

Pickling is the treatment of metallic objects to remove dust, scale, rust, and other impurities from their surface.

Dip Spin Coatings

Dip spin coating method is applicable to most parts, there are different coatings available from clear coats, colours and torques friction coatings.

Hydrogen De-Embrittlement

During the cleaning and acid pickling process of electroplating, atomic hydrogen can be absorbed through the surface of the metal component

Metal Coating Thickness Testing

Metal coatings are an essential component for protecting the objects from corrosion and other damages.

Salt Spray Testing

Neutral Salt Spray Testing is a common method to check the corrosion resistance of objects over time.
