The manufacturing as well as processing and service properties of materials are influenced by the chemical composition and structure of the surface and surfacelayers. This also applies to fine steel sheets coated with zinc. Therefore, it is desirable to analyse the surface and layers of the steel surface of such surface treated sheets. For such an analysis modern methods of microprobe analysis and surface analysis are basically suitable techniques. It was an aim of this research project to determine which analytical techniques are appropriate to fulfil the requirements of sheet producers and processors. A further aim was to define the results of the analysis in such a way, that they could be easily understood and provide reliable information to facilitate decision making in the industry.
