Analysis of coatings

Safe Control Material Technology conducts analysis and testing of coatings. We can perform general chemical analyses to identify the constituent elements of a material, and also wet chemical analyses in which each single element is carefully analysed.

Coatings on surfaces such as boiler tubes can be analysed to identify corrosion products. Smelts and ash are analysed using wet chemical methods according to a specially devoloped standard.

Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) provides an effective means of analysing corrosion on coatings. The constituent elements can be analysed qualitatively and 'mapping' can be used to document the distribution/location of specific elements.
