Our management systems are independently audited to the following standards:
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.
- Corrosion resistance, salt spray testing.
- Abrasion resistance.
- Hydrogen embrittlement testing.
- Thickness verification by micro section.
For specialised testing services we use NAMAS and NADCAP approved laboratories.
