Due to the difficulty in applying today's highly technical coatings, independent testing verifications are often required to assure that a structure is properly protected. These confirmations can often be required to revolve disputes or concerns over the quality and future performance of a coating system.

Highly trained CSI Technicians conduct independent, professional, and systematic testing using advanced equipment and instruments. Testing is completed using state-of-the-art devices such as pull-off adhesion testers, ultrasonic gages, soluble salt detectors, hardness testers, moisture vapor monitors, holiday detectors, hardness gages, pH measuring units, and many others.

Technicians are well-versed in and adhere to numerous standards and practices established by industry authorities, such as NACE International (NACE), The Society for Protective Coatings (SSPC), American Petroleum Institute (API), and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).

Electronic reports with photo documentation are prepared to accurately document the results of the testing procedures. Our testing can unequivocally provide you with unbiased information towards either resolving disputes or confirming the quality of any coating installation.
