Paint and Coatings

Coatings do not merely protect against stone chipping and corrosion, but they are crucial for the visual appearance of a product. The application of often complex coating systems to a wide range of materials (for example, metal, glass, plastic) places high demands on production technology. The characterization of point defects and the investigation of adhesion problems are the most common analytical questions. In addition, surface analysis is used for the following questions:

  • Identification of individual paint components (binders, additives)
  • Layer structure elucidation
  • Determination of the surface topography
  • Optimization of adhesion properties
  • Determining the cause of crater formation
  • Chemical identification of discoloration
  • particle analysis
  • ...
