    CHARACTERIZATION OF COATING STRENGTH: The characterization of surface coatings


    The Analyses & Surface CRT is equipped with standardized hardware and has developed the skills to meet the increasingly stringent technical and regulatory requirements (higher temperatures, more aggressive environments, vibration, high stress, high pressures, REACH recommendations or standards, etc.).
    These parameters require evaluation and the qualification of coatings and their refractory life according to existing standards.

    The advantage of our laboratory is that it can couple MATERIAL AGING-TESTING-CHARACTERIZATION and thus perform all the steps involved in the qualification of surface coatings :

    • Aging of materials (Salt spray, Climate chamber, Photo-aging, threadlike corrosion, etc.);
    • Adhesion tests (Lamination, Cross-hatching, Evaluation of blistering rate, etc.);
    • Mechanical tests (impact test, bending over conical mandrel, slow cupping, abrasion, etc.);
    • Hardness tests (Buchholz indentation test, Persoz-König, Vickers, Shore A and D, etc.);
    • Characterization of coatings (DSC, FTIR, surface topography, microscopic observation, thickness measurement, Colorimetry, Brightness, etc.);
    • Etc.

    Our facilities allow us to test according to the currently applicable standards and / or to customer specifications.

    Application examples :

    Performance of an adhesion test using a cross hatch cutter
    Adhesion according to ISO2409 standard before and after immersion

    Aging in climatic chamber
    Aging qualification according to temperature and humidity
