Paint Testing
The Purpose and Importance of Paint

Manufacturers and OEMs trust that the paint they use on their products is going to work as intended. Whether applied for visually aesthetic reasons or as a protective measure against corrosion, paint represents the finishing touches on a product before it is sent off for use. But different paints possess different characteristics like their resistance to damage, their ability to withstand environmental factors, and their exact color match properties. Manufacturers and OEMs will send products or samples off to paint testing labs like Applied Technical Services, Inc. to have these properties quantified and understood. ATS performs an array of paint testing methods to best inform our clients about the qualities of their paint, as reflected in the table below.
