A correct installation is critical to fulfill manufacturer specification and service requirements. Coating application works are usually monitored and certified by traditional methods (mostly based on visual testing). Those testing techniques do not provide proper information to fully evaluate coating application.
Our cutting-edge approach I+ using unconventional technology NDTs field measurements of the protective layer during installation (together with C+) ensures coating and application quality; and it will predict, identify and mitigate potential application problems (which may be unnoticeable by traditional inspection methods and will compromise future paint service) at an early stage before it is too late.
SF I+ Installation Certification reduces uncertainty about the performance of coating application contractors.
By improving painting works supervision:
Installation Certification SFI+ minimizes future cost overruns for repairs or full replacement during or after the warranty period, identifying and predicting potential problems at an early stage before it is too late.
Premature corrosion failures due to coating defects are minimized as the integrity of the coating is fully characterized, increasing the lifetime of the coating and the profitability of the assets.
Warranty problems due to poor coating conditions or discharge of responsibilities are minimized,since it is possible to know if coating has been installed fulfilling the specifications
