Measurement Testing

Our thickness measurement testing method for the past several years has been by X-ray Fluorescence.

Our latest investment to ensure product quality is the FISCHERSCOPE® X-RAY XDL®-B

Typical applications are:

  • Single coatings of Zn, Ni,Cr, Cu, Ag, Au, Sn etc.
  • Binary alloy coatings such as SnPb, ZnNi and NiP on Fe.
  • Ternary alloy coatings such as AuCdCu on Ni.
  • Double coatings such as Au/Ni on Cu, Cr/Ni on Cu, Au/Ag on Ni, Sn/Cu on brass, etc.
  • Multiple coatings with up to 24 layers (with WinFTM® V.6 only).
  • Metallurgical alloys with up to 4 (or 24 – with V.6) constituent elements.
