Organic coatings

Most of the steel are finally coated by metals and even paints.

 Paint characterisation requires specific techniques:

Capabilities to determine chemical composition and evolution of paints as well as its mechanical  and use properties

Determination of the paint properties in the liquid state and the cross-linking behavior

  • Some available tools:
  • Infra-red analysis (local)
  • UV-VIS analysis
  • ColorimetryBrightness
  • Differential Scanning Calorimetry
  • Dynamic Mechanical Analysis
  • Rheology
  • Tribometry
  • Nano-indentation, hardness
  • Gas Chromatography-MS
