Coating thickness measurement

Coating thickness measurement is used to determine the thickness of coatings on components and substrate materials. Depending on the type of coating, the material of the substrate and the coating thickness, different methods are used. Single layers as well as multi-layer systems are measured. Coating thickness measurement is a variant of thickness measurement in which the thickness of a body is determined.

Definition and significance of coating thickness measurement

Coating thickness measurement deals with determining the thickness of coatings and metallic overlays on surfaces. Coating thickness refers to the thickness of an applied coating such as plastic on a base material. There are single coatings and multiple coatings. Thickness measurement always records the total thickness of a material or component.
