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.
Aerofin Laboratories can conduct Surface roughness testing. testing specifications include:
We are excited to be taking a stand at this years Advanced Engineering Exhibition held at the NEC, Birmingham. We look forward to meeting existing customers and introducing our team to new faces. A lot has happened at the laboratory in the last 12months and we have a lots of new products and facilities available. The event is held from the 1st – 2nd November and covers aero engineering, composites engineering, automotive engineering, performance metals engineering and connected manufacturing. If you would like to visit us we are on stand 070.
We would like to wish all of our customers a very merry Christmas and thank you for your trust and support this year. We will be closed from 12.30pm on Friday 23rd December until 7.30am Tuesday 3rd January. We look forward to continuing our relationship in 2017 as well as welcoming any new customers.
This month we are proudly celebrating 10 years in business. Since the laboratory opened in 2006 we have grown rapidly to become a comprehensive test facility for materials evaluation. We could not have made it to where we are without the support of loyal customers, who have continued to work with us and recommended us to others. A big thank you to all of our customers old and new, we look forward to many more years working together.
last year Aerofin Laboratories announced the expansion of its salt spray department, we haven’t stopped there. with increasing interest in humidity and cyclic testing we are pleased to announce the addition of a 450ltr high humidity cabinet and two controlled climatic chambers. Increased size of chambers allows Aerofin to test larger components, assemblies and sub assemblies. Aerofin are also able to offer cyclic corrosion-humidity testing.
