Analysis of Sn coatings on steel using Stratos

This study demonstrates the powerful capabilities of an Axios FAST, PANalytical’s simultaneous WDXRF spectrometer, combined with the Stratos software module for determining the mass thickness of Sn coatings on steel using a bulk standard instead of costly in-type standards.

An important application of Stratos is in the analysis of tin coatings on steel. Tin-coated steel is widely used in the food packaging industry to preserve and increase the shelf-life of food.
