Norner provides a wide range of tests by environmental simulations to provide reliable data on the ability of the coating to protect the applicable surface. We provide standard pre-qualification testing and bespoke testing to cover different requirements and to meet your specified needs based on our resources and competence.
Norner is an independent test institute, accredited in accordance with ISO 17025 covering a wide range of instruments and methods.
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:
ISO 12944-6 Laboratory performance test methods
ISO 12944-9 Protective paint systems and laboratory performance test methods for offshore and related structures
For more specific requirements we offer salt spray test methods in various conditions.
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.
High pressure / high temperature immersion in aggressive fluids and gases (e.g. CH4, H2S, CO2 or other)
Resistance to gas pressure variations
Evaluation of material properties according to various specifications
