Surface coating techniques is widely used industrially to prevent surface abrasion and corrosion. Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM)is largely used in material surface research allowing reviewing and inspection quality control for possible defects. The aim was to demonstrate AFM PinPoint for analyzing generated defects during coating process. The first test involved a scratch produced over the surface of a coated glass substrate. The second test featured a scratched glass substrate whose surface was subsequently re-coated. Topography, adhesion energy and modulus images from two samples with defects created before and after coating were obtained. Examining adhesion and modulus images of the scratch before coating, they show no visible difference in mechanical properties.Where the glass substrate is scratched after the coating, a clear contrast is shown. AFM can be used for diverse applications in the coating industry because of its ability to examine the surface properties otherwise not observable by studying topography alone.
