Metal Coatings Analysis Using the Exoscan™ Hand Held FTIR
13 March 2008
Nearly all metal surfaces are coated in order to increase corrosion resistance, improve bonding to other surfaces or improve hardness. The Exoscan, a portable hand held FTIR from A2 Technologies, allows measurements to be made on metal surfaces in situ and non-destructively.
This Application Note describes how the Exoscan can be used to measure aluminum anodization thickness and to identify the coating type on aluminum.
