Metallographic preparation of zinc coatingsGuldenay Tamergil
Metallic zinc is used for corrosion protection of cast irons, mild steels and low-alloy steels. The metallography of galvanized products includes measuring coating thickness, microstructure analysis, base metal adhesion checks and failure analysis. Depending on the galvanizing method, zinc coatings behave differently during metallographic preparation, which makes selecting the correct method essential.
