Metallographic Preparation and Analysis: Coatings

Buehler is offering a new webinar that will focus on metallographic preparation and analysis of coatings. ‘Metallographic Preparation and Analysis of Coatings’ will be presented on Wednesday, February 23 2022. This presentation will include the metallographic challenges of coatings. You can register here.

The webinar will be presented by Dr. Mike Keeble. Mike is Buehler’s Americas Technology and Laboratories Manager. He has been providing consultative and technical support on various materials preparation, testing and analysis with Buehler for more than 16 years.

He is an active member of the Materials Science community and is currently President of the International Metallographic Society and Chair of ASTM Committee E04.01 on Specimen Preparation.

The webinar will cover:

  • Review fundamental principles of preparation of coatings
  • Share recommended preparation routes
  • Highlight and advise on solutions for common preparation problems
  • Provide recommendations on imaging and analysis
  • Use worked examples from different families of materials
  • Discuss key techniques to ensure success
  • Include a live Questions and Answers session

This webinar is ideal for metallurgists, metallographers, and metallurgical technicians, engineers, quality control, and laboratory personnel in any metallography facility preparing magnesium alloys. It will also benefit those working in adjacent fields such as mechanical testing, failure analysis, and engineering – where metallography is not necessarily an everyday need, but an understanding of what it is and how it can be used to characterize materials and properties.

Registration is complimentary and a replay will also be available. Attendees will receive a Certificate of Participation after the Webinar.
