Some of Our Paint Properties Testing Services

Adhesion Testing

We evaluate the adhesion strength of paint coatings to substrates, such as metal, plastic, or composite materials. This test helps determine the paint's ability to adhere securely and resist delamination or peeling.

Gloss and Color Measurement

We measure the gloss level and color accuracy of automotive paint coatings using specialized instruments. This assessment ensures consistent color matching and the desired level of gloss across different parts and surfaces.

Hardness Testing

We determine the hardness of paint coatings, which indicates their resistance to scratches, impacts, and wear. This test helps assess the paint's ability to withstand daily use and environmental conditions.

Chemical Resistance

We assess the resistance of automotive paint coatings to various chemicals, including fuels, solvents, cleaning agents, and environmental pollutants. This testing ensures that the paint maintains its integrity and appearance when exposed to common automotive substances.

Weathering and UV Resistance

We subject paint samples to accelerated weathering tests, simulating long-term exposure to sunlight, temperature fluctuations, humidity, and other environmental factors. This evaluation helps assess the paint's resistance to fading, chalking, cracking, and degradation.

Scratch Resistance

We evaluate the resistance of automotive paint coatings to scratches and abrasion, ensuring their ability to withstand everyday impacts and maintain a high-quality appearance.

Corrosion Resistance

We assess the corrosion resistance of paint coatings by subjecting them to salt spray or other corrosive environments. This testing helps evaluate the paint's ability to protect underlying substrates from corrosion and extend the lifespan of automotive components.
