Coating Testing
Coating Testing>

Important Metals like Aluminium, Copper, Iron, and Zinc are inherently unstable and exhibit corrosion due to various exposure conditions. To prevent corrosion, these metals are coated to prevent corrosion or easthetic appearance.

Lucid is in a position test various coatings such as:

  • Gold
  • Silver
  • Chromium
  • Nickel
  • Lead
  • Tin
  • Ceramic
  • Polymer
  • Electro-deposition thickness
  • Carburized case depth
  • Nitride case depth
  • Galvanized mass/coating thickness
  • Paint coatings
  • Plasma/D-Gun coated thickness

In addition to thickness, other related tests such as bond, hardness, porosity, wear and corrosion applications and others:

  • Salt spray
  • Taber abrasion/wear resistance
  • Chip resistance (gravelometer)
  • Plating composition/coating composition
  • Coefficient of friction
  • Uniformity test
  • Solvent resistance
  • SEM analysis
  • Cure testing (polymer, conformal)
  • Thumbnail hardness
  • Impact testing
  • Tape adhesion
  • Plating/coating hardness
  • Plating/coating contamination analysis
  • Peel testing
  • Coating weight
  • Chemical analysis of plating solutions
  • Conversion coating mass
