Aerofin Laboratories aim to satisfy all the testing requirements of paint processing facilities. we are constantly updating our range of testing.
Aerofin Laboratories can conduct qualitative & quantitative tests for evaluating the adhesion of organic and inorganic coatings on various substrates. Methods include: Pull off testing, Bend, Burnishing, Chisel-Knife, File, Grind-Saw, Heat-Quench, Impact, Peel and Scribe-Grid-Tape testing.
Many adhesion methods require conditioning or exposure to a specific environment prior to test. Aerofin Laboratories have the facilities to subject test pieces to humidity, Temperature, immersion and corrosion salt spray to name a few.
Test Methods include:
Roughness is defined as fine irregularities in the surface texture, which results from the inherent action of a production process. In protective coating applications there is a requirement to measure surface roughness to ensure a surface quality suitable for coating application.
Surface roughness measurements can also indicate processing stages that cause an increase in surface roughness, which may impact upon a products final suitability for application.
