Coating Inspection Services

Are you looking for Independent 3rd Party Coating Inspection Services?

The cost of corrosion is escalating and, you, as an asset owner, want to be confident that you are receiving the quality work you ask for. You want your bridges, pipelines, tanks, stadiums, and other structures to stay protected for a long time with minimal future repairs. Independent Coating Inspection Services help any asset owner of industrial and commercial structures mitigate the risks of corrosion by verifying the quality of protective coating systems.

Verification of Quality during surface preparation and coating application, for both exterior coating or interior linings, is highly desirable when structures of any type are undergoing repair or replacement. QA inspections provide verification that the contractor’s QC practices are adequate to achieve the desired final product according to the painting specification. KTA’s Coatings Group also provides independent QC Inspections for Contractors for SSPC-QP 1, QP 3, QS 1, and QP 5 Projects.
