Automotive coatings

Can the coating cope with the harsh traffic environment? We have unique resources both when it comes to equipment and competence.

Development of accelerated tests, methods for service life prediction, advanced analysis methods for multilayer coatings and methods for evaluation of easy-clean automotive coatings are all examples of what we work with.

With a microtome we can slice up a coating in slices only five micrometers thick which we then analyse in various ways. By this procedure we obtain depth profiles of oxidation or additive concentration throughout the coating. UV stabilizers is also something that we work with. We have equipment for conventional testing of coatings such as weathering tests, colour and gloss measurements, chemical resistance etc. Feel welcome to contact us for more information on what we can offer you within automotive coatings.
