Non-destructive Thickness and Composition Analysis of Coatings on Steel using MESA-50
Steel coating plays an important role in preventing corrosion of steel samples. Therefore, an understanding of coatings can help in improving the steel properties. XRF is a powerful technique for measuring thickness and composition of coatings. We carried out non-destructive thickness and composition analysis of Zinc-Nickel coating on steel using the MESA-50 X-ray fluorescence analyzer.
Fast, easy and safe control of Zn-Ni galvanization baths with MESA-50, a portable EDXRF
Fast, easy and safe control of Zn-Ni galvanization baths with MESA-50, a portable EDXRF
The EDXRF technique is used for the elemental analysis not only of solids, but also of liquids such as plating solution thanks to dedicated sample cells. This specific example shows the ability of MESA-50 for electrolytic baths follow-up by characterizing the degradation of Zn-Ni galvanization baths.

H&D Measurement of Hydrogen (and Deuterium) by RF GDOES
Measurement of Hydrogen (and Deuterium) by RF GDOES
RF GD OES is well known for ultra fast elemental depth profile of thin and thick films. All elements can be measured including Hydrogen (H) which is important in many application fields - for corrosion studies, for PV, in metallurgy, for the development of hydrogen storage materials and for all polymeric coatings studies to name a few. The most sensitive emission line for H is in the VUV range at 121,567 nm.
