A Simple Mounting Technique Ensures Exact Measurements of Opaque Coatings

Measuring the thickness of inorganic coatings or paint on metallic surfaces on metallographically prepared specimens is difficult because the opacity of the coating blends into the mounting medium, and a sharp, well defined interface at the outer surface of the coating and themountingmedium is hard to see.
