Quality Control - What they eyes cannot see...

Posted by RM Coating Supplies Pty Ltd on 4th Mar 2019

Quality is important in any industry. At RM Coating Supplies the quality of our customers output is central to what we do and what we offer. Our commitment is to always better meet the needs of our customers, including adding new test equipment to our listing to help meet their performance and financial requirements. Though with so many products out there how does one know what is actually required ?

When your powder coating job has been completed your next step should be quality control testing. Depending on the coating specification, there are recommended on-site tests that should be performed to help ensure the applied powder coating will meet the specified requirements. If the coating has to tolerate harsh environments or resist the everyday normal wear and tear, then you and your customers need to know what to anticipate from your coating works.

However, ensuring your quality control measures are met will allow you to retain your existing customers and expand your powder coating business more.

Businesses can trust our test equipment range to accurately measure wet film to dry film coating thickness, surface profile to cleanliness, humidity to dewpoint, material thickness, coating adhesion to gloss and porosity detection.
