Coating Thickness Gauge Test Aluminum Alloy Anodized Layer Thickness

In order to effectively control the thickness of anodized coatings, accurate non-destructive measurements are required, which can be measured with a hand-held coating thickness gauge. The article recommends several coating thickness gauges for anodized layer inspection.

Why do we measure the thickness of the aluminum alloy anodized layer?

Anodizing is a very effective and ideal means of finishing aluminum. The anodization aluminum process parameters have a significant effect on the properties of the oxide formed. If low temperature and acid concentration are used, less porous and harder coatings are produced. Higher temperatures and acid levels and longer soak times produce a softer, more porous coating. Small changes in the alloy itself or any of these parameters can affect the coating. In order to effectively control the thickness of the anodized coating, accurate non-destructive measurements are required. Measurements can be made with a hand-held coating thickness gauge.
