Paint Inspection

Paint or coating inspection is the core of our business; all our inspectors are employed within the company, we do not use subcontract labour. We have 8 full time employees with 6 of them being either ICorr Level 3 or NACE CIP Level 3. We are confident we can meet your inspection requiremnts

Coating Condition Surveys

Our paint inspection team assess the condition of your coatings with reliable, professional surveys. Working from your drawings, isometric, P&ID, structural etc. we survey and photograph all the key areas of your asset, identify any areas of concern and indicate corrosion values based on the European ‘Re’ scale.

We can calculate relevant surface areas from drawings and produce a common sense work scope identifying key priorities by assessing the current ‘risk to business’. We evaluate the integrity of aged coatings or damaged fire protection and the potential for ‘corrosion under insulation’.

Third Party Inspection

During maintenance works, we create independent paint inspection reports; provide final sign-off and acceptance certificates and update the ‘Re’ condition value to confirm work meets the required specification.

Coating Advice and Specifications

With years of experience within the coating industry; we offer an impartial and reliable coating consultancy for any environment. Many specifications are outdated and can be greatly improved from surface tolerant coatings to high temperature coatings. Our coating consultants have the knowledge and most importantly we are totally independent so you can be confident you are getting first class advice.

NDT Inspection

Recently introduced, our NDT inspection service is a natural progression from basic paint insection. The request for the service came about during a recent contract which entailed the Contractor carrying out surface preparation to pipework. On numerous occasions the surface preparation exposed severe metal loss or pit corosion, this required either MPI or UT inspection to confirm the pipework remained 'fit for purpose.'

Training

The majority of our paint inspection team have hands on experience of surface preparation and coating application. They can assist your company in establishing a fully trained work force. We can provide technical report writing to confirm your operatives are pre-qualified for Norsok M501 specifications by providing required evidence of the CPT (coating procedure test).

We are SSPC Trainthepainter qualified, and can now offer training at our new training facility.
