Non-magnetic metallic coatings on metallic and non-metallic basis materials -- Measurement of coating thickness -- Phase-sensitive eddy-current method
This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2014. Therefore this version remains current.
ISO 21968:2005 describes a method of using phase-sensitive eddy-current instruments for non-destructive measurements of the thickness of non-magnetic metallic coatings on metallic and non-metallic basis materials such as zinc, cadmium, copper, tin or chromium on steel, as well as copper or silver on composite materials.
The phase-sensitive method can be applied without thickness errors to smaller surface areas and to stronger surface curvatures than the amplitude-sensitive eddy-current method described in ISO 2360, and is less affected by the magnetic properties of the basis material. However, the phase-sensitive method is more affected by the electrical properties of the coating materials.
