Relate to field performance
Give rapid reproducible results
Examine main failure mechanisms
Identify compatibility problems or synergies

Tests performed in our laboratories include:

High pressure and temperature sour gas tests
Internal and external coating evaluation and material selection
Coating compatibility tests for oil, gas, potable water, structural steel and bio-containment laboratories
Interpretive reports
Photographic documentation
