Test Panel Preparation and Coating Services

Are you looking for Test Panel Preparation and Coating Services?

Coating systems are often applied to test panels for field exposure or accelerated weathering testing. Critical decisions on markets to enter and service environments where the systems will and won’t work are oftentimes based on how coatings perform on the test panels. We specialize in preparing Abrasive Blast-Cleaned Panels and Coated Steel Test Panels.

KTA's Test Panel Preparation and Coating Services Answer the Following Questions:

  • How are coated test panels used to determine suitability of a coating system for a particular environment?
  • How critical is the surface preparation when evaluating coating performance using test panels?
  • How critical is the consistency of the film build when evaluating coating performance using test panels?
  • What is the value of a single source for fabrication, preparation and coating of test panels?
