Q-FOG – is used for salt spray test which is a standardized and popular corrosion test method, used to check corrosion resistance of materials and surface coatings. Usually, the materials to be tested are metallic and finished with a surface coating which is intended to provide a degree of corrosion protection to the underlying metal. This unit can be used for cyclic corrosion/UV exposure as well.

Gradient oven tester – is a testing instrument which simulates the conditions of a production oven in the lab. It is used to test the baking and drying properties of liquid/powder coatings, resins, plastics, etc. and can determine how these materials will react when placed under extreme stress from heat.

QUV – Accelerate the weathering and UV damage caused by rain, Dew and sunlight.

Impact Tester – This device is used to test the resistance of coating applied on rigid substrate. Different forces will apply which determines the strength of coating. This could be direct or indirect.

Xenon Arc – unit is used to reproduce the weathering effects that occur when materials are exposed to sunlight (either direct or through window glass) and moisture as rain or dew in actual use.

Dry Film Tester determines rate of dry-film formation of organic coatings using straight line. It specifies the rate of cure by measuring dry to touch, dust free and dry through of coating.

UV Curing Unit – is used to cure acrylated coating by exposing the same to the UV light. This device is capable of curing coating using mercury or Gallium bulbs.

Instron – is used to determine the elongation, tensile strength, and stiffness (modulus of elasticity) of organic coatings when tested as free films.

Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) – FTIR spectrometer simultaneously collects high spectral resolution data over a wide spectral range. This confers a significant advantage over a dispersive spectrometer which measures intensity over a narrow range of wavelengths at a time.

Scrub Tester – is used to determine the resistance of wall paints to erosion caused by scrubbing.

Karl Fischer – This device is used to determine water content in polymers.

Rheometer – is a laboratory device used to measure the way in which a liquid, suspension or slurry flows in response to applied forces. It is used for those fluids which cannot be defined by a single value of viscosity.

Gloss Meter – is used to measure the specular gloss of nonmetallic specimens for gloss meter geometries of 60, 20, and 85°.

Krebs Unit Viscometer – is used to measure Krebs Unit (KU) viscosity to evaluate the consistency of paints and related coatings.

Spectrophotometer – is used for the measurement of the reflection properties and color of object-color specimens with a hemispherical optical measuring system, such as an integrating sphere.

Brookfield Viscometer – These test method covers the determination of the apparent viscosity and shear thinning and thixotropic properties of non-Newtonian materials in the shear rate range from 0.1 to 50 s-1.

MFFT (Minimum Film Formation) – Device used to determine the minimum temperature at which emulsion vehicles coalesce to form continuous films

Mandrel Tester – Is used to determine the flexibility of coating when substrate is bent and goes under de-formation.

Hardness Tester – To determine the surface hardness of coating over time. This can be measured either by Konig or Persos.

Taber Abraser This test method covers the determination of the resistance of organic coatings to abrasion produced by the Taber Abraser on coatings applied to a plane, rigid surface, such as a metal panel.
