Each work situation and coating project has unique characteristics. Charter’s involvement enables clients to apply sound technical and practical procedures to ensure that an applied coating will perform acceptably. From project planning to failure analysis, we can apply our vast knowledge of corrosion prevention systems to assist you in your due diligence and reporting needs.
Our Laboratory test methods follow CSA, ASTM, NACE, AWWA, DIN, ARAMCO, CGSB, API, and ISO standards allowing predicting performance and avoiding costly field failures of coatings.
Charter Coating Service (2000) Ltd. provides an independent and unbiased point of view of coating performance in specific protective applications and corrosive environments. Charter has a three dimensional approach to problem solving: Laboratory Testing, Inspection and Consulting. These three services in combination generate an environment for optimum coating performance.
Laboratory testing of new coating systems can forecast the performance of coating materials and systems. Laboratory testing includes also coating failure analysis, which is done in the laboratory and in the field. The failure is examined to determine the root cause and the results are documented.
Field inspection by expert personnel converts the depth of laboratory investigations into practical and cost effective on-site decisions.
Consulting services include the preparation of practical, thorough, to-the- point coating specifications. Project planning and coating selection are important components in ensuring maximum coating performance.
