Preventative Maintenance Excellence in Canada
Your Coating Inspector Maintenance Plans in Canada
We protect our client assets with preventative measures. By regularly inspecting for abrasion, corrosion and regular wear and tear, you’ll prevent critical failures and costly repairs to your equipment.
Coating maintenance program and inspection is a critical operating cost and investment in facility and infrastructure owner’s assets. The consequence of not establishing a regular maintenance plan is far greater, resulting in high-cost savings.
Business and infrastructure owners must ensure regular inspection and preventative measures taken to maintain their protective coatings to increase the lifespan of their equipment and maximize operational efficiency.
Benefits of a Corrosion Maintenance Plan
- Higher equipment efficiency
- Reduction in costly repairs, which in an emergency can come with an additional cost
- Prevention of corroded parts, materials, and infrastructure
- A longer working lifespan of materials
- Prevention or lessening of equipment downtime due to costly shutdown due to repairs
- Prevention of failures in critical infrastructure such as bridges and rail which disrupts the supply chain
- Enhanced workplace safety and compliance with local regulation
- Reduced liability and risk from a potential failure resulting in legal liability, injured workers, reduced throughput and operation
- A cleaner, better-looking, more aesthetically-pleasing facility
All protective coatings deteriorate or corrode over time. Corrosion maintenance through inspection, monitoring, and repair will prevent this from happening to your assets and equipment.

our coating inspection process
We have a tried and true methodology for assessing and prevention corrosion through our ISO-standardized and client-customized workflow.
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.
All jobs are conducted according to industry standards: NACE/AMPP, 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.
We check industrial equipment to ensure protective coatings were correctly applied to minimize corrosion risk. Our inspectors go through rigorous training to identify problems in coating applications. They can make recommendations for which types of coatings can best protect the materials from corroding.
A coatings survey provides a sense of how a coating is currently performing and identifies any problems that need to be addressed immediately. The survey provides the next steps to be undertaken. Surveys are a necessary part of an ongoing maintenance plan and should be performed on a regular basis.
Formerly called the NACE certification, our AMPP certified inspectors have decades of combined experience. We protect industrial and commercial business assets from corrosion. Invest in hiring one of the top-rated NACE inspectors in the world. Get a free consultation on your business asset protection by contacting us today.
To determine the quality of the protective coating our inspector will measure dry film thickness or DFT. Considered one of the most important tests an inspector can make. DFT test serves as a foundation for the entire coating inspection,.
This is the qualitative test of the adhesion coating system. This test will only give allow to ensure there is an adequate bond to the coated substrate. This test does not differentiate between levels of bonding. Adhesion testing is used to evaluate the adhesion.
The Coating Inspector can conduct a non-destructive High Voltage Holiday Testing to find any voids and failures. This is possible due to electrical charge that flows through protective coating. Invest in hiring one of the top-rated AMPP inspectors in the world.

What is an ISO Certification?
“Certification to ISO 45001 demonstrates an organisations commitment to a safer working environment and the protection of employees against injury at work.
ISO 45001 certified organisations have identified and operate to regulatory requirements through enforcing procedures for compliance with legislation. Improved identification of hazards and risk management, involving all levels of the organisation through setting objectives, targets and documented responsibilities are recognised by regulators as a commitment to safe working conditions and continuous improvement.”
QAS ISO certifies strict compliance procedures to legislative and standard compliances.
We have been certified in continuous improvement and service to our compliance.
We are commited to impeccable client service & employee safety.
The AMPP (Formerly know as The National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE)) is a globally recognized certification body to certify and train corrosion engineers.
With over 36,000 members globally, it is the most recognized trade association of corrosion inspectors to ensure industry standards in the coating inspection industry.
Established in 1943, it serves to train corrosion inspectors, enforce industry standards, certify engineers, publish and research corrosion inspection techniques and journals, as well as provide a standardized approach to corrosion inspection and prevention.
NACE “equips society to protect people, assets and the environment from the adverse effects of corrosion.”
Every project, business and industrial assets are unique. Depending on the scope of work, location and amount of inspectors or work hours required for your project, the cost can vary.
However, The Coating Inspector is committed to saving your business time, money and assets. The cost of equipment breakdown, shutdown or repair delays can cost your business far more resources than preventative maintenance, work and inspection.
