Laboratory conducts research in the area of applied anti-corrosion protections. Cooperation between paint inspections and lab department enables comprehensive performance of supervisions. Our staff has high qualifications (FROSO lvl. III) and experience, both inspection like and laboratory based. The equipment facilities enable sample testing in salt, climatic and condensation chambers. We check resistance to corrosion and moist compress resistance, durability, properties of paint systems, adhesion, thickness, hardness, tightness, scratch resistance, colour and gloss. We assess the resulting corrosion damage: rusting, blistering, peeling, cracking, corrosion in the cut or filiform corrosion. Tests are conducted in the laboratory as well as in the field. The laboratory has an accreditation certificate in accordance with the PN-EN ISO 17025 standard. The scope of the tests performed can be found in the section ANTI-CORROSION LABORATORY.
The laboratory department also deals with the qualification of paint systems (CPT), design anti-corrosion systems and detailed issues in the field of cathodic protection.
In case of non-compliance, groundless complaints, or corrosion processes of unknown origin, we provide assistance in the development of technical opinions. They will allow for the verification of existing state, determination of the causes of corrosion, as well as define preventive and corrective actions.
