Coatings are not only protecting a product (corrosion, stone-chipping, ...) but are also important for the optical look of it. The often required application of complex layered coating systems on very different materials (metal, glass, polymers, ...) necessitates high standards of the production technology. The characterisation of point defects and the investigation of adhesive problems are among the most common issues to be resolved:

  • Materials reception control
  • Identification of individual coating components (binders, additives)
  • Clarification of layer structure
  • Surface topography
  • Adhesive properties
  • Crater formation
  • Discolouration
  • Particles
  • ...
