    Abstract

    The elemental composition of many coatings will control the physical, chemical, and mechanical properties, including the wear and corrosion resistance, and will affect the ultimate performance of the part. Special techniques and considerations must be used when analyzing the composition of metallic coatings to insure accurate and meaningful information is provided.
