MECHANICAL AND COATING TESTING LABORATORY

In our best in class mechanical/coating testing laboratory we complete an independent analysis on coil as well as pipe sections to ensure that the components of the steel is what was ordered and that the quality of the steel is what our customers deserve and we demand. Through this testing we are able to guarantee you, our customer, pipe that meets or exceeds required chemical and mechanical properties. Those tests include:

Mechanical Test

Tensile Test
Used to determine the overall strength of steel

Guided Bend Test
Used to test the quality of a weld seam

Charpy Impact Test
Used to determine overall toughness of steel including absorbed energy and brittle appearance

Computerized Hardness Test
Used to verify steel hardness values

Chemical Analysis Test
Used to determine the chemical analysis of steel

Drop Weight Tear Test
Used to determine point of brittle fracturing and/or cracking in steel

Coating Test

Cathodic Disbondment
Cathodic Disbondment testing provides an assessment of the resistance of the coating to disbondment when subjected to cathodic protection.

Adhesion
Adhesion testing is necessary to ensure coating will adhere properly to the substrates to which it is applied.

Interface Contamination
Contamination testing is performed to identify an excessive amount of foreign contaminants

Interface Porosity
Porosity testing is performed to determine the degree of porosity or voids in the applied coating.

Cross-section Porosity
Cross-section Porosity testing is similar in nature to Interface Porosity Testing only rated on a separate scale.

Gel Time
Gel Time testing is performed to determine the length of time a coating powder takes to gel at a specified temperature.

Flexibility
Flexibility testing is performed to determine flexibility of the coating during transportation and field bending.

Differential Scanning
Scanning Calorimetric or DSC is used to determine the glass transition temperature and the exothermic heat of reaction of epoxy powders and coating.

Impact Resistance
Impact Resistance testing is performed to provide a method for assessing the coating’s resistance to damage by impact from a falling weight.
