Hi Dattu.

Please present your real world situation. It could be paint, it could be anodizing. Did you find this piece of foil as a prize in your breakfast cereal or are you trying to reverse engineer a stealth bomber? Is this your freshman chemistry homework , or you a practicing chemist?

No one can help you if you don't tell them what you are doing. Please, please ... be specific about what you are looking at, what function the item plays, who you are, and why you are attempting to analyze this surface finish. Then someone can help you.

Uh, oh. No reply or clarification from Mr. Ambati. Maybe it was a stealth bomber after all :-)
