The Model 550 portable coating thickness gage is calibrated to measure uncured powder coatings on a range of substrate materials. The user points the probe at the surface to be measured and presses the button. LEDs help the user to position the probe. When in position the thickness reading is displayed on the instrument. This display shows the thickness of the predicted cured coating after polymerization, in either microns or mils.

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.
