Quality Assurance
As part of our ongoing commitment to quality assurance Specialised Coatings have built up a suite of inspection and testing equipment, for surface cleanliness, powder coating tests and wet paint system tests.
Many of our suppliers carry out regular audits of our processes to ensure readings correlate with the relevant standards. Coated sample plates and tubes are sent away for salt spray and humidity testing at regular intervals.
We also have our own small onsite “real time” test area next to our jet wash area.
We have NACE level 3 qualified inspectors on site thoroughly passing off all of our wet spray work from simple domestic items to rigorous 3 coat offshore paint systems.
