Phascope Paint Offers Non-destructive Coating Thickness Measurements
Gardco’s Phascope Paint is a probe in pen design that measure non-destructive coating thickness of non-conductive coating materials on steel, iron and non-ferrous metals. Users can also utilize the Phascope Paint app for viewing, analyzing and reporting data on a smart phone or tablet. The measurements with the Phascope Paint conform to standards DIN EN ISO 2360, ASTM D7091, DIN EN ISO 2178 and DIN EN ISO 21968.
Masking is employed in most any metal finishing operation where only a specifically defined area of the surface of a part must be exposed to a process. Conversely, masking may be employed on a surface where treatment is either not required or must be avoided. This article covers the many aspects of masking for metal finishing, including applications, methods and the various types of masking employed.
