Roof Coating Analysis

CHALLENGE:

A national distributor of 油漆ed metal roofs encountered peeling 油漆 on several residential and public 建筑s. The roof 涂层 had a 20 year warranty against peeling provided by the 油漆 supplier, but the 油漆 supplier failed to 荣誉 the warranty, citing a defect in the 油漆ing process rather than faulty 油漆. Consequently, this would have resulted in multiple law suits and multimillion dollar claims against our client.

 

行动:

As a 油漆 consultant, 十大彩票平台 inspected multiple sites where peeling 油漆 was evidenced, samples were taken and roof 涂层 分析 and 测试 completed.

 

结果:

十大彩票平台 was able to show that the failures were caused from faulty 油漆 formulations that when exposed to the elements resulted in soft 涂料 that failed adhesion. Accordingly, our client was able shift the responsibility to the 油漆 supplier to pay the claims.

油漆 and Coating Failure Analysis

CHALLENGE:

A century old government 建筑, constructed of concrete, was in need of 油漆ing. Upon removal of the old 油漆, a reoccur-able, un油漆able powder continued to resurface on the 建筑. The client had explored this issue with many 油漆 companies and other 油漆 consultants, but none of them could not explain the phenomena.

 

行动:

On short notice, 十大彩票平台 performed an onsite inspection and collected representative samples of the residue. The team performed a 油漆 and 涂层 failure 分析 of the soluble components of the residue.

 

结果:

十大彩票平台 was able to demonstrate that the powder residue is a result of secondary efflorescence of the concrete.  Secondary efflorescence is the result of concrete degradation and the migration of water soluble salts to the surface of the concrete.  With the proper diagnoses of the problem, 十大彩票平台 was able to recommend corrective action.

Hydrophobic Clear Glass Coating

CHALLENGE:

A premium supplier of coated glass 油漆 products desired a glass 涂层 that provided long lasting rain repellency when applied to clear window glass for use in automotive and residential applications.

 

行动:

十大彩票平台’ 涂料 product development group developed a clear 涂层 that is easy to apply and provides long lasting rain repellency.

 

结果: 

Glass coated with this product exposed to rain or water droplets will quickly shed water droplets so little or no water will remain on the glass.
