Expertise in the Manufacturing, Materials and Biomedical Group include:
A local company, Bilt Hamber Laboratories, who develop and sell a number of corrosion protection products wanted some independent testing undertaken on various wax coatings.
The company supplied 6 different competitor wax coating products, including one of their own products to undergo an accelerated corrosion test (based on ASTM B117-03).
The material testing lab, which is equipped with a salt spray chamber, was used to undertake a full investigation of the performances of these products.
The results qualified and ranked the performance of the products.
