Laboratory equipment delivered by TQC is commonly used in paint manufacturing, testing, application and general laboratory.
Film application in coating industry includes a broad range of different devices and instruments which are an absolute necessity for testing or evaluation. Only in this way the quality-related properties required can be tested, compared, documented and communicated in compliance with the requirements.
Film application covers a range of instruments that can be divided in four groups:
Viscosity is a fluid’s property for resistance to flow or deformation. The higher the viscosity of a product the more it will resist to flow. Using or modifying viscosity is becoming a hot item. Paints are engineered to be non-Newtonian these days and often chemically modified. Additives react to the force that is exerted to the paint, thus making paint almost solid when it is in the pot and very fluid when stroke onto the surface.
Corrosion and weathering have both separate causes of weather influences. Where corrosion often refers to the degradation of the metal substrate or the delaminating of the paint weathering usually is about the degradation of the coating film.
Grindometers for film applicators
The density of paint will depend on their ingredients in the paint. Density is also known as specific gravity or mass per unit volume
The drying time of paint depends on the various stages during curing. During the drying process of films various stages are easy to detect but difficult to define in terms of chemical and physical principles.
