Test Substrates

If coatings tests are to be reliable and reproducible, they must be performed on a substrate which is reasonably consistent from test to test. Unfortunately, ordinary commercial sheet steel displays wide variations in the surface properties which affect the bonding of coatings.

Biuged Brand Test Substrates provide a uniform and consistent surface for testing paints, coatings and adhesives. Panels are available in a variety of substrates, surface finishes, sizes and shapes. They are used to minimize metal variability as a source of bias in critical tests and they are economical enough to be used for sales samples and batch records.

        Panel Options. Panels are available in steel and aluminum, bare and pretreated. Most panels are flat and rectangular, but we do have special shapes such as automotive styling panels which mimic the side of an automobile. In addition, custom panels can be manufactured to specification.

        Consistent & Convenient. The Biuged production process is specifically tailored to minimize variability of metallic surfaces. We buy all of our substrates direct from selected mills which control surface texture to our specifications. Our inventory of over a million panels means that 95% of our orders are shipped from stock.

        Economical. Due to high volume production, our panels cost less than one might expect.  Equally important, the convenience of pre-cleaned, safe, standardized panels reduces the expensive time lab personnel could spend cleaning and handling panels.
