Coating Inspection Bond/Adhesion Testing

Coatings are bonded on the subsurface using one of the adhesive mechanisms.

The bonding or adhesion of the coating on the subsurface is very crucial in severe corrosive environments.

A coating inspection under the bond test or adhesive test is the measurement of the required tensile force to break the coating (quantitative test) or bend test is performed to see of the coating is peeling or flaking off from the subsurface ( qualitative test). LMATS hold proven procedures and NATA accreditation in coating bond / adhesion test.

Thes tests are performed in accordance with AS 1580.402.1, DNV, Offshore specifications, EXXON Mobil, ESSO Shell specification, aerospace specifications and other similar standards.
