Challenges associated with protective coatings inspections include defects or failures in coating systems due to improper surface preparation, cleanliness, and environmental condition applications. It is essential to verify the quality of coating procedures to prevent unnecessary problems. These challenges can cause delays in the construction schedule, which as a result, will increase the costs of the project. PTIhas the ability to provide protective coatings inspection services, whether it is to assure surface application methods, required thicknesses, and/or preparation methods.
Do you know what is Protective Coatings Inspection?
The surface preparation and application of a protective coatings system is the foundation for a successful longlasting coating system. Many factors should be considered when designing a coating application including but not limited to environment, expected service life and application limitations. Good execution of the preparation / application process is necessary to maintain a low annual cost. Also, our NACE Certified Inspectors can be present to witness and perform visual inspection of coatings in accordance to SSPC Specifications and manufacture requirements.
