Coating Testing

Varnishes, paints or coatings: we’ve got you covered

The outer coating of your products and packaging is more than just protection, it’s the first thing anyone sees. From tin plate coatings for food and beverages cans to epoxy coatings to keep steel protected from the elements, a coating can make or break a product – that’s why we’ve got testing solutions to suit them all.  

Varnishes, paints or coatings – we cover them all 

We’ve got a wide range of products and services to check your coatings look their best and stand the test of time. 

We have opacity reflectometers, mechanized scratch testers or salt spray and humidity environmental cabinets that will put your coatings through a thorough series of test. We can also help you with your coefficient of friction (CoF) and peel testing needs, so you can make sure your coatings are sufficiently bonded to your substrates.  

Check out our popular Coatmaster Flex. It measures the coating thickness of wet and cured/dried powders and paints, immediately after application, to ensure your processes are perfect and helping you save on coating material, improving coating quality, and reducing running-in time and scrap. 

Our PosiTest PC Powder Checker measures uncured powder coatings using non-contact ultrasonic technology to predict a cured thickness. Its speedy measurements are ideal for moving lines and swinging parts. While scan mode makes light work of analyzing large areas.  

Test your coatings to the required standards 

From meeting the requisite food safety standards essential in the food and beverage industry to ensuring your coatings will meet regulations in construction, Industrial Physics can help.  

We know exactly how important it is to be able to test and prove that your coatings are up to scratch. That’s why we design our testing machines and solutions with all of the most common current industry standards in mind – and keep an eye on the future too.
