Muralplast has launched a complete range of technical testing and product development services for paints and other surface treatments after investing heavily in a new state-of the-art laboratory.
Muralplast Technical Services provides efficient and thorough testing services for existing construction industry clients, and a full range of consultancy services to architects and engineers who want to make sure products they are specifying meet the highest industry standards or who wish to develop products with bespoke specifications. The new facilities will also play a key role in the advancement of Muralplast’s existing range of paints and specialist surface treatments.
Laboratory tests include scrub resistance, PTV (pendulum test value) slip resistance, colour testing and matching, gloss level tests, dry film thickness, coating flexibilities, hydraulic adhesion, lead content testing and Class “O” flame resistance. PTV testing can also be carried out on site.
Muralplast has appointed David Greenslade as its Technical Services Manager. David has a wealth of industry experience and knowledge having held a number of senior technical and trouble-shooting posts in the paints and surface treatments industry for companies including ICI, Horace Cory, and Ellis & Everard.
Muralplast is part of the S. Lucas Group
, the fit out and finishing specialist contractor.
Danny Lucas, Chairman and Managing Director of the S. Lucas Group
, said: “We have invested heavily in our new laboratory facilities. Muralplast Technical Services will provide our existing clients and the wider community of specifiers with a highly efficient and cost-effective testing and product development service.”
