Bespoke Inspections for Bespoke Applications

Whether it’s cruise ships or windmills, buildings or petrochemical objects, no two applications for coatings, lacquers, paints, or corrosion protection are the same. To assess whether your object has the right coating, the right thickness and colourfastness for its application, and whether the supplier’s claims match up to the product’s performance, TÜV Rheinland offers a variety of inspection services on all manner of objects.
