Abstract

Metallographic examination is a critical step in the assessment of thermal spray coating characteristics. This article discusses the major steps involved in metallographic examination: sectioning, mounting, grinding, polishing, optical microscopy, and image analysis. It provides a discussion on etching to reveal grain structure. The article also provides recommendations for metallographic examination of some standard coatings.
