Paint Layer Challenge

Manual grinding and polishing is difficult to control and therefore includes a high risk of grinding away the subject for the examination. Targets can be invisible on the surface of the sample.


A reproducible method for evaluation of paint defects was developed consisting of:

  • Precision cutting with Accutom-100 to isolate the point of interest in distance of µm
  • Mounting and alligning the sample in special holder, Target Grip, 
  • Controlled Material Removal (CMR) with TargetMaster in a 5 step method reaching the paint defect in 12,5 minutes
