Our fully equipped UK based laboratory conducts a wide range of independent tests on coatings, before or after they are applied to a substrate. We can test to a variety of standards including BS, ISO, ASTM and DIN.
We can support your business with Ecolabel Accreditation and also Qualicoat testing.
One area where we have particular expertise is the evaluation of raw materials used in paint or resin manufacture. We normally incorporate the raw material into an appropriate paint or resin and then test the product. A similar product, made using a conventional raw material, serves as a control. Test work of this nature is of particular interest to those who wish to establish whether the surface coatings industry could present a potential marketing opportunity.
Evaluating surface coatings for their resistance to microbial attack forms an important part of our work and we have particular experience in testing coatings for resistance to in-can spoilage and fungal or algal growth on applied coatings.
