Characterization and performance evaluation of industrial anti-corrosion paints


Characterization and performance tests of paints, in both liquid form and dry film, are important tools for the quality control of industrial paint, and for the selection and development of paint formulas and systems.

IPT performs tests and analyses on paints to characterize them and verify their corrosion performance in aggressive environments. In addition to a wide range of standard tests, IPT also develops tests according to the client’s needs, based on his specifications or on national and international standards. The most common tests for liquid paint and dry paint films include:

Liquid paint: specific mass, coating ability, mass and volume of solids, and viscosity;

Dry paint film: abrasion, color, gloss, cathodic delamination, holiday detector, film thickness, adherence, accelerated tests and immersion tests.
