Elcometer has added the new 309 Delta T hygrometer model to its line of climatic condition measuring equipment. Before painting, the coater must meet the coatings’ parameters which are clearly specified on the paint manufacturer’s product data sheet. Delta T (T?) and Relative Humidity (%RH) are two of these parameters. The new hygrometer is designed to be a user-friendly quick and accurate gauge for measuring these two characteristics. The unit comes with pass/fail gauge limits on-screen as well as a flashing green or red LED. The unit also features a backlight for use in dark or confined spaces, and fully-sealed sensors.

Can Electroplated Fe-C be an Environmentally Friendly Alternative to Hard Chromium and DLC Coatings?

Electroplated FeC is an efficient surface treatment based on non-aggressive chemicals with a deposition rate of ~20 μm/h at a process temperature of 50°C.  The FeC coating is carbide-free and temperature stable up to ~250°C with a hardness of 750 HV, which is comparable to frequently applied hardened steels.  The FeC coating has reasonable friction properties and have high affinity towards lubricants because of incorporated amorphous carbon.  Hence, for certain applications, the FeC coating might be an interesting wear-protective alternative to hard chromium and to PVD-deposited low-friction diamond-like carbon coatings (DLC’s), which are rather difficult and costly to deposit on larger items.
