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.
  • 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.
