Technical support and
joint design/planning

A profound knowledge of the industry and lots of acquired experience enable us to support our customers during the design/planning stage to help them identify the best surface treatments for their specific applications:

  • Study of feasibility and alternatives
  • Definition of type of treatment
  • Sample and validation laboratory tests
  • Definition of series production process and control plan
  • In-depth analysis in case of failure or claims thanks to a state-of-the-art laboratory

Analysis, research and development laboratory

The Micron-Durox group, with customer satisfaction and coating quality as its primary objective, has invested heavily in the creation of a sophisticated laboratory for the complex and in-depth analysis of surface coatings.
Both control and validation tests are performed on the pieces produced, as well as research and development aimed at implementing the coatings carried out.
We actively collaborate with customers by analysing and testing their components, as well as performing failure analysis by investigating materials, processes and treatments in order to find the most suitable solution to their specific requirements.

The following tests can be performed:

  • MEASUREMENT OF COATING THICKNESS UNDER THE MICROSCOPE | ISO 1463
  • MEASUREMENT OF COATING THICKNESS, INDUCED CURRENT METHOD | ISO 2360
  • MEASUREMENT OF VICKERS MICROHARDNESS | ISO 4516
  • MEASUREMENT OF SURFACE ROUGHNESS | ISO 4288
  • ADHESION STRENGTH ANALYSIS | ISO 2819
  • SALT MIST CORROSION RESISTANCE TEST | ISO 9227 – ISO 10289 – ASTM B117

  • TABER ABRASER RESISTANCE TO WEAR MEASUREMENT | ISO 10074 B.3
  • COATING POROSITY ANALYSIS| ASTM B733 – Ferroxyl test
  • DETERMINATION OF PHOSPHORUS CONTENT BY MEANS OF EDS SPECTROSCOPY
  • ANALYSIS BY MEANS OF SCANNING ELECTRON MICROSCOPE (SEM)
  • OF METAL ALLOYS BY MEANS OF EDS SPECTROSCOPY
