Thickness of Al coating on Stainless Steel Pipe

Does anyone knw of a method or technique to determine the thickness of aluminum coating on Stainless Steel Pipe?

The Aluminum is supposed to be 2 microns thick but we want to try to prove it.

Is the stainless steel magnetic?

If it is then a standard precision coating Thickness meter (such as our Sonacoat III) should handle it.

If not then it should still be possible with a standard eddy current flaw detector and suitable probe, although it will be necessary to draw up a custom calibration curve - You are using the fact that the Stainless steel is much less conductive than the aluminium.

Dear Mike,

The method given by Joe Buckley may work for thicker coatings but I am not sure that it works for the very thin coating that you are referring to. You may need to do some research and development work. Sample based destructive tests may be the only way if nothing else works.

Best wishes.

Swamy
