Surface control

Surface evaluation

The preparation of surfaces before the application of coatings is an important stage to guarantee quality protection.

Inspection kit SP5000 - SP5005

To fulfill the demand of many companies in the line of paint and their customers we composed the 'Basic Inspection Kit'. In the field the need has arisen of one standard measuring set to perform all measurements and tests regarding painting.

The kit consists of the following tools :

- Destructive or non destructive humidity meter (SP5000 or SP5005)
- Digital thermohygrometer RV2000
- Compass
- Illuminated surface microscope
- Cutter knife
- pH paper
- Wedge
- Inspection mirror and lamp
- Marker
- Master Paint Plate

Pretreatment test kit SP7315 - SP7316

The pretreatment test kit is especially composed to control all relevant parameters during the pretreatment of steel prior to painting. The pretreatment test kit is available as a basic kit and a full kit.

 
   

Analysis of surface contaminants Bresle Kit

According to : ISO 8502-6, ISO/DIS 8502-9

It's useful to check the cleanliness of steel surfaces before applying a coating in order to avoid the appearance of corrosion. The system uses hollow self-adhesive patches (Bresle Patch®). The kit makes it possible to proportion, by conductivity, the surface contaminants put in solution thanks to a liquid transfer and extracts using a syringe.

Surface evaluation Swedish Standard

According to : ISO 8501-1, SIS 055900

This normative booklet treats preparation requirements of steel surfaces before applying a coating. This document describes by text and many photographs the various surface qualities and degrees of rust to facilitate the visual aspects.

  • Translated into various languages, of which English.
 
      

Paint inspector's field guide LD3080

The inspection of protective coating systems for corrosion control includes a wide range of test methods and techniques. A wide range of these inspection methods are covered in the Paint Inspector's Field Guide (PIFG) in an effort to help individuals with the basic fundamentals of protective coating inspection in the field.
 
   

Coating defect identification label SP0050

Imperfections or problems found during inspections of coating work usually require attention of second or third parties after they have been found. A second opinion of the paint supplier, witnessing of counter parties or just the attention of a repair crew. In each case it is important the above mentioned spots are easily found back, also when the original inspector is not around anymore. Large structures such as ships, bridges and steel construction but also poorly lit areas such as tanks can cause problems in that respect. How, for example, would you describe the exact location of a number of small pinholes, hardly visible (or even non-visible) with the bare eye in a 5000 m² tank bottom ?

For recordkeeping often pictures of the problems found are being taken. Including the CDI label in the photograph retrieves immediately the dimensions of the defects and the writable area on the label offers the possibility to add extra information to the photograph.

In a series production environment the CDI labels can be used to identify parts for rework or scrap.
 
   

Chalking tester Zehntner ZHC 1200

Determination of the degree of chalking of paint coatings or similar coatings, based on the adhesive tape method according to HelmenTM.

  • Very much used for accelerated weathering tests.
  • The tests can be carried out in the laboratory or directly at the object on site.
  • Objective and reproducible measuring results independent on the individual person.
 
   

Hull roughness gauge DC9000

The Hull roughness gauge surpasses the industrial standards with an easy to operate 4-way directional push button, graphical representations, storage of data in multiple batches and survey reports in Microsoft Excel. The whole system fits into a small sized, waterproof, rugged casing that is allowed as travel luggage and benefits your overseas travel plans.
 
   

Dust test + roller SP3200 - SP3600

The Dust test kit according to ISO 8502-3 allows assessment of the quantity and size of dust particles on surfaces prepared for painting. Dust on blast cleaned surfaces can reduce coating adhesion, leading to premature coating failure and sub-standard coating finish. The dust test kit can be used in accordance with the recommendations of BS EN ISO 8502-3 either as a pass-fail test or as a permanent record of the presence of dust.
