EDAX Inc., developer of advanced microanalysis technology, has introduced an X-ray analysis software module for anti-corrosion and other coatings.

Used with the company’s Orbis micro-XRF elemental analyzer system, the software provides simultaneous multi-layer film thickness measurements and composition analyses for metal, oxide, nitride, carbide and other coatings.

The module can simultaneously measure multi-layer film thickness and perform coatings composition analyses.

Typical applications include analysis of anti-corrosion and wear coatings for aerospace and automotive components; RoHS analysis of solder coatings; and analysis of electrical contact coatings for electronics, magnetic media and semiconductors.

Characterizing Coating Structures

“We are excited about the addition of this new analytical capability to our Orbis product line,” said Bruce Scruggs, Technical Product Manager. “It enables our customers to leverage the speed and sensitivity of their system to characterize complex coating structures quickly and accurately.”

EDAX X-ray coating analysis software is designed to simplify material analysis by providing results without standards and to improve accuracy with minimal standards input. The software can measure thicknesses from 1nm to 50 µm for up to five layers with multiple elements in each layer, the manufacturer says. The software and result reporting are consistent with EN ISO 3497 and ASTM B568.

The software is available as an option with the purchase of a new Orbis system and as an upgrade to existing system owners.

Established in 1962, Mahwah, NJ-based EDAX is a unit of AMETEK Materials Analysis Division.
