Griekspoor Thermal Coatings test and research laboratory


Uptime and reliability are really key in today’s industry. Develop and test together as partners will identify potential problems early on, reducing commissioning, maintenance, and downtime costs at the end.

Our state-of-the-art laboratory provides customers, users, suppliers and manufacturers with the necessary know-how to be prepared for every situation, increasing overall efficiency and reliability.

Griekspoor’s full-service testing and development

The Griekspoor in-house laboratory is specially designed for developing new coatings, as well as input control and quality control of our production. To achieve the best possible coating for your specific situation means to find, specify and test the main requirements together.

To assess coating quality, the NBD10300 and DNV/NOV standard are normative for the hydraulic industry. Griekspoor Thermal Coatings' laboratory is equipped to demonstrate full compliance with both standards. The main tests and examinations are:

  • Various corrosion measurements (ISO 9227, ECP/EPQ, galvano-static test)
  • Hardness test
  • Fatigue test
  • Microscopic examination and characterisation
  • Bond strength
  • Layer thickness, layer roughness, etc.

The result: a tailored coating to your specific requirements that ensures maximum reliability, quality and overall cost efficiency.

Griekspoor stands for cooperation based on good partnership

Griekspoor Thermal Coatings works closely together with customers/users and (seal) manufacturers, if possible as early as the development phase. This is where the values found in the extensive endurance tests are verified and translated into practice. Also due to our fully equipped lab, we are a professional partner for both our customers and suppliers.
