The Purpose of Coating & How to Measure it.

(This is a General write-up on What is Coating & How it can be Measured to Ensure Cost-Saving Production.)

 What is Coating? 

Coating is known as a layer of a material, typically from Paint, Powder Coating, Enamel, Electroplating or Lacquer, that is applied as a surface of a Base Material, aka Substrate.

 When is it Applied? 

When there is a need to add:

Or for Functional Purpose, on a Substrate.

The Main Consideration of Coating is its Controlled Thickness

 When is it Controlled? 

From Application Tools & Equipment like:
  • Spray Guns used by Automotive industry to spray on vehicle parts.
  • Paint Brushes/Paint Rollers used by Construction industries like painting on Mild Steel Structure.
  • Heavy Coating Machineries used by the Electronic industries to coat thousands of electronic parts.

And so on...

 Type of Applicants 

Automotive, Engineering, Electronic, Metal-Fabrication, Furniture, Paint, Electroplating and various related industries that has painting/coating process in their plant.

 Why must it be Measured? 

To Save Cost!

To Meet Technical Requirements!

Those who do not spot-check their coating thickness, may end up with Over-Coated or Under-Coated products.

Over-coated products means that the company will have to spent additional cost than the actual requirement needed by internal QC or accordingly to client's standard.

While Under-Coated products can result with premature failure due to lax of coating thus corrosion will happen earlier than its expected lifespan.
  • If noticed, products can be rejected and if rework is required, additional cost will be spent.
    • This may affect the company's reputation, for producing 'low-quality' products.

 Coating Measuring Scale? 

The measuring unit to measure coating thickness is usually micrometer (micron/µm) or a thousand of an inch (mil).
Do you think you can do it with:
• a Microscope? 
• With Your Naked Eye?
• With Just a Touch of Your Finger?

Maybe you can, but will it be Accurate or Efficient?


 Our Solution? 

For General Coating Thickness Measurement:

We recommend ElektroPhysik’s Coating Thickness Gauges - MiniTest 700 Series.

The Series provides Non-Destructive Measurement on

Non-Magnetic Coatings (paint, synthetic material, chromium etc.) on Ferromagnetic Substrates (steel). 

Insulating Coatings (varnish, enamel, synthetic material, anodising aluminium etc.) on Conductive Substrates (aluminium, copper, austenitic stainless steel).

Heavy Test Equipment - MERIDIAN Salt Spray Machine (Environmental Testing Chamber)

Types of Salt Spray Machines, from Meridian Instruments.


Salt Spray Machines are Accelerated Environmental Testing Chambers used to Test & Analyse the Limits of a Base Material and/or its Surface Coatings’ corrosion resistance.

*Corrosion resistance: a material’s resistance against its reaction towards adverse elements that can corrode it.

Base materials can be stone, ceramic, polymers, metals, etc.
  • Applied with the following finishing: 
    • Paint/Metallic Coatings, Electroplating, Anodising, etc.

Applicants & Application:

  • Automotive Industries - To evaluate how the vehicle’s paint/coating or base metallic material can withstand the salty exposure from fog/mists.

  • Marine/Shipping Industries To measure their ships/boats paint/coating’s corrosive resistance after long exposure in the sea.

  • Surface Coating Industries - To check if their coating withstand seaside exposure for clients in the construction industry (for building metallic overhead bridges above seawater bed).

And other related industries that would like to test the corrosive resistance of their products.

How does it work?

(1) Once the samples are placed & sealed within in the Salt Spray Machine, the user will set the chamber to produce a fog (also referred to as mist/spray) of salt water solution. 

(2) This creates a corrosive testing environment that will attack anything that is sensitive to corrosion. i.e. the protective layer/surface coating of the substrate. 

(3) Thus allowing the users to test the corrosion resistance of their samples easily and effectively in a controlled area/environment.

This process is known as salt spray (or salt fog) test.

(4) After the end of the test, the user will know which base material / finishing, provides the most suitable protection against corrosion.

< Chamber spray volumes vary from supplier to supplier. If there is a minimum volume required, users are expected to comply to all salt spray tests standards as stated and compiled by the supplier of the machine. >

The ASTM G85 is the Standard Practice for Modified Salt Spray (Fog) Testing.

Other Related & Relevant standards include: 
  • ASTM B117 - Standard Practice for Operating Salt Spray (Fog) Apparatus
  • ISO 9227 - Corrosion tests in artificial atmospheres (Salt spray tests)
  • JIS Z 2371 - (Methods Of Salt Spray Testing)

Portable Instrument – TES-1365 (Digital Hygro-Thermometer)

The TES 1365 unit is a Humidity Temperature Meter aka Hygro-Thermometer.
What is a Hygro-Thermometer?
A Measuring Instrument that has the characteristics of a Hygrometer and a Thermometer. 

What is it used for?
The hygrometer portion measures the moisture content of the air to determine its relative humidity (RH).

The thermometer portion measures the air temperature to determine the relative humidity of the air.
