Validation of surface treatment processes

You wish to validate the performance of your surface treatment processes...

First of all, it is important to understand why you need to validate your surface treatment processes. Indeed, whether you are in a context of development of a component, a product … etc., you want on the one hand, to protect it or on the other hand, optimize it. 

Surface treatment to protect 

The development of a product includes many phases, among them, the ability to perform.  Thus, to meet this last phase, the protection by surface treatment of your product is essential.

Surface treatment to optimize

You are facing several problems of failures on your surface treatment… Thus, to understand why this treatment fails, it is advisable to carry out an analysis of surface treatment.

If you already know the cause of the problem and wish to improve the surface treatment, FILAB can help you validate new surface treatment processes on your products.

Finally, the validation of surface treatment processes allows you to continue to develop your product and adapt your manufacturing process with complete peace of mind. 

The technical means of the FILAB laboratory to validate your surface treatments

FILAB supports you in the validation of all types of surface treatment processes such as 

  • by chemical treatment

  • by shot blasting

  • by passivation

  • by anodizing

Our means of analysis and characterization of surface treatments are also multiple, depending on the nature of the treatment:

  • Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM-FEG EDX): chemical and morphological analysis, thickness control, homogeneity

  • Analysis by AFM

  • TOF-SIMS analysis, XPS for extreme surface examination 

  • FTIR analysis

The positive aspects of FILAB

  • A highly qualified team

  • Responsiveness in responding to and processing requests

  • A complete analytical park of 2100m²

  • Tailor-made support
