We have a fully equipped and staffed laboratory for the monitoring and control of process solutions and waste stream.

We measure and test the performance of our coatings using a variety of different techniques including:

  • Coating weight/surface density using the strip and weigh method
  • Plating and anodising thickness, non-destructive thickness checking using X ray fluorescence, eddy current and electromagnetic thickness measuring equipment
  • Plating alloy composition using X ray fluorescence
  • Anodising sealing
  • Adhesion
  • Corrosion resistance, salt spray testing
  • Abrasion resistance
  • Hardness
  • Hydrogen embrittlement testing
  • Thickness verification by micro section

For specialised testing services we use NAMAS and NADCAP approved laboratories.
