Analytical & Testing
Quality is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort and skillful execution. It represents the wise choice of many alternatives.
Coating Technologies’ processes are monitored by our in-house laboratory facility. We are equipped to perform all necessary wet chemical analysis and maintain a computerized SPC program under the requirements and auditing of NADCAP.
Our in-house testing capabilities include: X-Ray Fluorescence plating thickness verification, 24 hour immersion testing for passivation, oxalic acid testing for black oxide coatings, weight gain testing for phosphate coatings, bend test for plating adhesion and microscopic examination for coating integrity.
Other testing required by specifications, such as, salt spray, embrittlement, deposit composition and microhardness is performed by a NADCAP accredited outside testing and research laboratory.
All measurement and test equipment is calibrated to the requirements of ISO-10012-1 or ANSI NCSL Z 540-1.
All analytical procedures and record keeping meet the requirements of AC 7108 Rev. C and AC 7004 Rev. B.
