Is X-ray fluorescence the best test method?

An X-ray fluorescence spectrometer is very expensive. The price of such a device starts at 10,000 to 20,000 euros.

It is also only conditionally suitable for counterfeit detection: This method can only penetrate about 5 µm into the material. Underalloyed surfaces can be exposed, but common galvanised counterfeits with a gold-plated surface cannot!

The testing devices from Goldanalytix with their significantly higher penetration depths reliably protect you from forgeries - for a noticeably lower price.
