ACT Process Verification Kit Audits Paint and Finishing Lines
ACT Test Panels’ Process Verification Kit is a custom set of test panels used to audit paint and finishing lines. Each kit is personalized to match the substrate(s) and pretreatment that is running in a given facility. Users process the panels on the line, then return them to ACT for corrosion testing. The company then provides a test report, confirming corrosion resistance and coating performance, enabling users to determine product quality.

The causes of and remedies for defects in hard chromium deposits are explored in the first of this two-part P&SF article from 1984. Photomicrographs and SEM (scanning electron microscope) photographs will illustrate that most defects in various hard chromium deposits arise from defects in the basis metal. These defects may be in the original metal surface or may be caused by preplate finishing. Homogeneous hard chromium deposits can be produced only by eliminating these defects. Practical suggestions and procedures will be given.
