Setting the industry standard for

Amusement Parks & Attractions

What we do

Amusement park rides and attractions see a combination of stresses and elements unlike other comparable structures of their size and shape. The Coating Inspector works with government regulators and amusement parks to successfully control corrosion on rides and make corrosion inspection a critical and fundamental part of a park’s maintenance operation.

Our Process



A maintenance survey determines the coating conditions of a surface. Surveys are used to create a maintenance schedule for re-coating and touch-up applications.


The Coating Inspector performs testing for a wide range of coating applications. We test for conformity, compatibility, performance, coat thickness, hardness, adhesion, and finishes.


Once testing has been completed, we provide our detailed recommendations in a report. This ensures that all aspects of the survey are considered and addressed.

Coating Specifications

All jobs are conducted according to industry standards: NACE, ISO 9001:2015 and CSA/SSPC in Canada, ASTM and ISO for international clients.


The Coating Inspector works with contractors, owners, and engineers. We are a third party unbiased leader in the provision of professional coating inspection services.

Blasting & Painting

The Coating Inspector provides supervision and project management in the sandblasting, painting and coatings industry.

What our clients say

HOCO Limited engaged The Coating Inspector's services for work on our Niagara SkyWheel. Scott developed a complete specification after carefully reviewing the structure's original coatings along with those used in recent years for general touch-up work. After the work was awarded and during the coating processes (both in-shop and on-site) Scott and his team provided high-level testing and inspection services and issued us detailed reports in a timely manner. When issues arose they promptly provided clear and concise instructions to correct.
