Abstract 

ISO 16962:2005 specifies a glow discharge optical emission spectrometric method for the determination of the thickness, mass per unit area and chemical composition of metallic surface coatings consisting of zinc- and/or aluminium-based materials. The alloying elements considered are nickel, iron, silicon, lead and antimony.

This method is applicable to

  • zinc contents between 0,01 mass % and 100 mass %;
  • aluminium contents between 0,01 mass % and 100 mass %;
  • nickel contents between 0,01 mass % and 20 mass %;
  • iron contents between 0,01 mass % and 20 mass %;
  • silicon contents between 0,01 mass % and 10 mass %;
  • lead contents between 0,005 mass % and 2 mass %;
  • antimony contents between 0,005 mass % and 2 mass %.
