Laboratory Testing

Our materials testing laboratory analyzes all classes of epoxies and coating for identification, chemical analysis and physical properties

We pride ourselves in the quality of our work and our capabilities in working with the epoxies and coatings industry.  The objective material characterization is often to see if the epoxy and/or coating meets the required ASTM classification, DOT specification or Project specification. We provide our clients with the expertise, experience and knowledge to help with the most difficult project, as well as making them feel comfortable with our testing services.
