Paint Inspection Services


The services that we provide are tailored to fit each individual project.

For large scale construction projects we can meet with you and inform you of the critical times to have a paint inspector onsite. Generally on projects that involve large infrastructure (i.e. gantry's, bridges, pipelines, etc.), the most important times to have a paint inspector involved are: 
  • A pre-contract meeting to approve and agree on the paint specification. Meet with the contractor and agree procedures.
  • Post blasting, to check blast quality.
  • To perform surface cleanliness checks after the surface preparation stage has been competed (to ensure that the substrate was adequately cleaned and free of contamination). 
  • Check environmental and surface conditions immediately prior to painting commencing and ensure correct handling of the product. At the pre-contract meeting agreement will be made on the environmental conditions that are necessary for painting to commence. General checks that are made include: application of the stripe coat, recoat intervals, wet and dry film thickness, pin hole detection, etc.
  • Post priming, check D.F.T. readings and perform an adhesion check. Check environmental conditions prior to the intermediate coat being applied. Regular checks are performed at each to monitor the application of the coatings.
  • Post intermediate coat, again check D.F.T. readings and perform adhesion check. Check environmental conditions prior to the topcoat being applied.
  • Finish coat applied – check total D.F.T. readings and perform a general visual inspection.
