Plating thickness method



We are manufacturing stitching wire( required for corrugated box) this wire is electrogalvanized . Sir my problem is how to measure thickness of this wire. Also how to measure hardness of this wire.

* Please tell me the testing method also the instrument.

Thank you,

You can have in your lab, micro hardness tester which will tell you hardness. There are coating thickness tester for metal substrate and conductive coating. You need to standardize equipment on non plated surface and calibrate instrument with known thickness standard. After that you will read thickness directly. Kokur destructive thickness method is another way and you can do cross section and check thickness under microscope.
