NATA Accredited/NACE Certified - Coating surveying
Coating inspections are conducted non-destructively using visual assessment and calibrated ultrasonic or electromagnetic equipment to ascertain coating thickness, however destructive testing to determine adhesion effectiveness is also sometimes necessary on new coating procedures. NACE certified coating inspections can be conducted on:
- In service equipment to determine the extent of any coating degradation, breakdown or damage.
- On material substrates prior to coating application.
- On a newly applied protective coating system to determine if the coating complies with the manufacturing standard or applicable code. On completion of the inspection, QMS provide a detailed photographic report outlining any areas of concern or areas which fail to comply with the relevant industry standard or code.
