About Holiday testing
Low voltage Holiday testing
Low voltage holiday testing, is one of two methods of holiday testing. mainly utilizing a wet sponge. This type is used on thinner coatings.
High voltage Holiday testing
High voltage testing is conducted with the use of higher voltages. This allows inspectors to find imperfections in thicker coatings.

Industries We Serve
We are surface inspection professionals, delivering comprehensive services to industrial and commercial customers throughout Ontario, across Canada, and around the world. We provide complete coating inspection services for all industries.
Amusement Parks & Attractions
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.
The ability of coatings to resist corrosion over extended periods is an important contributor in safeguarding your capital investment. Corrosion related maintenance can cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars over the lifetime of your ship. The Coating Inspector can help you to reduce costs, maximize asset availability, keep personnel safe, and preserve the environment.
Corrosion is a major cost for the Energy Generation Industry due in part to the high temperatures of operation, harsh environmental conditions, and highly abrasive materials. You lose money every day that your plant is not generating power due to corrosion. The Coating Inspector combines expertise with years of experience working across North America and Europe.
Aircraft, ships and other vital assets used by the military must be kept in peak shape and readiness to fulfill their important defense roles. That means corrosion prevention is a must. The Coating Inspector offers industry knowledge gleaned from years of experience working in differing environments in regions.
Highways & Bridges
Corrosion poses a growing threat as bridge infrastructure continues to age and spending on maintenance and repair is put off. Corrosion is a leading factor in the degradation of bridges. The Coating Inspector possesses expertise in corrosion inspection, prevention, and protective coatings.
Water & Wastewater
Both public and private water and wastewater agencies throughout North America have infrastructure assets ranging in value, from millions to billions of dollars. The Coating Inspector utilizes proven principles of corrosion prevention and mitigation for dams, aqueducts, tunnels, water, and wastewater treatment plants, pumping plants, distribution pipelines, and storage reservoirs.
Pipelines & Underground Systems
Storage tanks, pipelines and other underground systems are all susceptible to corrosion. They carry or hold such materials as crude oil, processed liquids, and wet and dry gas. The Coating Inspector can perform regular evaluations for condition, effectiveness and potential for failures.
Types Of NACE Inspection
Carthodic protection is a critical mitigation component to protect your assets against corrosion. By using an electro-chemical technique, corrosion is transferred from the primary material that you want to protect, to another metal.
The NACE institute offers a standardized education in Cathodic Protection. Through practical and theoretical training it empowers NACE-certified corrosion engineers to mitigate and reverse corrosion on business-critical materials.
Coating inspectors are NACE-certified and inspect industrial coatings across a wide variety of commercial and industrial industries. Protective coatings and paint are critical in maintaining equipment integrity. Coating inspection is the process of evaluating degradation and corrosion on those protective coatings.
A proactive corrosion management program, supervised by a NACE inspector is critical to maintaining industrial and heavy-duty equipment and assets.
By establishing a preventive maintenance plan and regular NACE-certified inspection, your business assets will be better protected against critical failure, reduced efficiency, and costly delays as a result.
We have the tools and technologies to expertly analyze surface coatings and provide detailed reports on their condition, allowing our customers to make informed business decisions on scheduling, budgeting and maintenance. The coating industry is fast changing. Advancements and new products enter the marketplace on a continual basis.
