Our paint laboratory is ENAC accredited, and we test both liquid and dry paints.
The characterisation of liquid paints is based on the measurement of different physicochemical properties of the paint. These properties include the measurement of density, viscosity and shelf life. In addition, we perform various tests related to the composition of the paints before application, such as amine content, isocyanate content, volatile organic compounds, non-volatile compounds and solids content. The measurement of these properties provides information that facilitates decision-making in the process of technical reception of paints, their application or in the recertification of expired products.
Annually, we perform more than 1,400 tests related to the characterisation of liquid paints.
We have 16 test procedures that are ENAC and NADCAP accredited and/or approved by Airbus, Bombardier and Embraer. Using these procedures, we perform the following tests on liquid paints: Appearance of the individual components, flow Cups Calibration (dHTD), quality of the individual components, condition in container (IRR), condition in container, consistency, amine content, volatile organic compound (VOC) content, non volatile content, solids content and corrosion inhibitor, lifetime control of the painting kits (viscosity in flow cups), density of liquid samples, determination of isocyanate content, fineness of grind, nonvolatile matter in volatile solvents and viscosity: determination of time by use of flow cups.
