The coating and paint properties mainly include physical properties (such as appearance, density, thickness, mechanical properties like bond strength, abrasion resistance, residual stress, etc.) and chemical properties (such as chemical composition, corrosion resistance, heat resistance, electrochemical properties, etc.). These properties depend on various factors, such as spraying equipment, materials, processes, etc. The evaluation of coating and paint performance involves many test methods. In actual work, it is not required that all the above-mentioned properties of the coating and paint be tested. Instead, different test items are selected according to different purposes.
As a professional coating and paint testing laboratory, Alfa Chemistry will gather the composition, physical, and chemical properties information of the coating and paint by providing all kinds of analysis results. We have the ability to analyze coating or paint materials to suit different national standards. Alfa Chemistry is your one-stop-shop laboratory performing all of coating or paint analysis.
Research and development support
Alfa Chemistry offers research and development support as a formulation lab to develop new paints and coatings.
Work with raw material suppliers
We also work with raw material suppliers to create pilot batches, marketing samples and to benchmark new raw materials.
Test coatings for various physical properties
We test coatings for various physical properties critical to product performance and success, including adhesion, abrasion, durability, stain resistance, corrosion resistance, stability and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
|Physical and chemical property testing|
Identification and composition (EDX elemental chemical microanalysis, IR-Ft Spectrometry)
