TOTAL COATED THICKNESS OF  SUBSTRATE

Using a micrometer, prepainted materials are tested to verify compliance with the set standards for total coated thickness.

COATING MASS

The amount of Zinc-Aluminum coated over the base metal which, in conjunction with the paint system, determines the service life and longevity of the product, is evaluated and compared to standards.

HARDNESS OF THE BASE METAL

A Rockwell hardness tester is used to determine the hardess of the base metal as this correlates directly with the material’s strength, wear resistance and other structural properties.
