In House XRF Machine and Laboratory
And for adittional peace of mind we have our very own in house laboratory complete with microscopes, XRF High Sensitivity analyser.
How XRF measures coatings
The XRF analyzer can measure coating thickness from 0.00 to approximately 60.00 microns, depending on the material. X-rays are emitted from the analyzer, and they strike the sample, causing it to fluoresce. The analyzer detects the returning X-rays and uses the data to calculate the thickness of the coating or coatings.
According to ASM International’s Surface Engineering for Corrosion and Wear Resistance, various surface engineering techniques that fall within this range are plating (mechanical, electroless, electrolytic), vapor (chemical, physical deposition), and bonding (resin or lacquer).
