Aerofin Laboratories can conduct coating thickness testing to ensure that the required depth of coating is evident to perform it’s function in service. Coating thickness measurements may be performed non destructively using an Eddy current meter. Alternatively a specimen can be cross sectioned and mounted permitting microscopic assessment.
Aerofin Laboratories can offer photographic support incorporated within laboratory reports for micro-section thickness.
Micro section of multi coat paint system
Photographic reports can be provided for optical microscopy methods such as micro-section thickness where accurate scales and measurements can be added to enhance the micro-graphs.
Micro section of copper coated pipe
The software can be used to measure any visible elements within a micro-graph. for Example, indent depth, scratch depth, pitting, heat affected zone and alpha case.
