Measure thickness of coating film on Zinc Plating Steel

  1. Jan 23, 2016 #1
    Hi All,

    I'm searching for the possible method to determine organic coating thickness cover on steel tole was plated by thin zinc layer. Additionally, I also want to measure thickness zinc plating layer in between these layers (coating on top & steel on bottom) without destructing them.
    Please kindly advice me a possible device to do this and How does this device work ?

    Nice weekend!,

    I believe there is a magnetic device like a pen which will measure coating thickness.
