Zetium - Analysis of Cr coatings on steel using Stratos

This study demonstrates the powerful capabilities of a Zetium, combined with the Stratos module for determining the mass thickness of chrome coatings on steels. This is achieved using only one bulk standard instead of costly in-type standards.

An important application of Stratos is the analysis of chromium coatings on steel. Chrome coatings are often used in the automotive industry because of their high resistance to corrosion. Chrome coatings are also used for decorative purposes. The coatings optimally protect the steel from premature wear and consequently extend the lifetime of important engine components.
