Corrosion under insulation is the corrosion that occurs when steel equipment becomes corroded as a result of water penetration.
Corrosion under insulation is extremely critical as it makes up a large percentage of the global process industries maintenance expenditures, forced shutdowns and lost production.
To provide good corrosion protection we can simulate CUI (corrosion under insulation) conditions in our laboratory through the following tests:
Norner performs a wide range of cyclic climate chamber tests to simulate different climate with numerous possible test conditions under laboratory controlled yet accelerated conditions.
Cyclic Immersion testing in different climate conditions.
Custom test conditions as per client`s request.
Norner performs testing in different environmental conditions to measure the corrosion resistance of your product. With accelerated weathering tests we can for instance simulate the influence of salt, moisture and sunlight.
We perform coating testing in accordance with ISO 12944 - the international standard on corrosion protection of steel structures by protective paint systems:
For more specific requirements we offer salt spray test methods in various conditions.
Norner is granted ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation for our protective coating testing. This is the most important quality standard for test laboratories internationally.

Mechanical properties of your coating.
Our mechanical testing services for protective coating are performed with state-of-the-art equipment and cover:
We also perform Optical measurements such as gloss and colour measurements.
Norner performs a variety of corrosion tests in accordance with several NACE standards.
Offshore platform ballast water tank coating system evaluation.
Offshore platform atmospheric and splash zone maintenance coating system evaluation.
We perform client specific standards based on different test methods:
We offer testing of protective coating for offshore applications based on Norsok M-501.
This Norsok standard gives the requirements for the selection of coating materials, surface preparation, application procedures and inspection for protective coatings to be applied during the construction and installation of offshore installations and associated facilities.
In order to meet the requirements in Norsok M-501, ISO 20340 we offer 3rd party witnessing of paint applications.
Norner provides a multitude of coating tests under standardized and customer-specified conditions.
