This study demonstrates the powerful capabilities of an Axios FAST, PANalytical’s simultaneous WDXRF spectrometer, combined with the Stratos software module for determining the mass thickness of chrome coatings on steels. This is achieved using two bulk standards instead of costly in-type standards.

An important application of Stratos is in the analysis of chrome coatings on steel. Chrome coatings are often used in the automotive industry because of their high resistance to corrosion. The coatings optimally protect the steel from premature wear and consequently extend the lifetime of important engine components.
