We test organic and inorganic coatings as well as temporary corrosion protectives to relevant standards and/or customer requirements. We also conduct comprehensive qualification tests. In the testing of organic pipe coatings, we specialize in:
Natural weathering tests, salt spray tests (ISO 9227) and artificial climates (ISO 6270-2) can be used to test corrosion resistance.
In our autoclave laboratory, coating materials can be tested under extreme conditions, such as elevated pressure, elevated temperature and exposure to corrosive gases.
We test the properties of paints and films from continuous coil coating processes or automotive painting operations.
We test according to the following methods and/or standards:
