The TQC Bresle Patch is used to test for surface contaminants, such as salt, which may cause major problems and increase maintenance costs for shipping, vessels, ballast tanks, oil and gas piping, industry buildings and steel structures in general. Coating failure such as blistering and corrosion may be the result of a too high level of salt prior to painting. The Bresle Method described in the ISO 8502-6 is commonly used to measure the level of surface salts prior to coating. A so-called bresle patch (a small self-adhesive plastic patch) with a washed latex membrane and a known surface area is used to dissolve the soluble salts.

The TQC DewCheck 4 - Dewpoint Meter (DPM)/ Dewmeter is an extremely versatile dewpoint meter to measure and record all climate parameters required to treat surfaces. This easy to use and robust dewmeter conforms to ISO 8502-4 & ASTM D3276-07 and measures the relative humidity (%RH), ambient temperature (Ta) and surface temperature (Ts) and calculates the dewpoint temperature (Td) and the difference between the dewpoint temperature and the surface temperature (ÄT). The difference between the surface temperature and dewpoint temperature indicates the optimal climate conditions for painting. All parameters can be stored in the dewmeter's memory, tagged with a date and time. For communication between DewCheck 4 dewmeter and a PC the DewCheck dewmeter USB cable is standard supplied. To analyze the data the DewCheck 4 comes with the special Ideal Finish Analysis software. This software is the most advanced temperature and humidity monitoring software package for Dewpoint Meters available today. It offers user friendly reporting functions for standard production work as well as advanced calculations for in depth analysis of the climate parameters prior to coating. Detailed graphic representations and customizable reports help to make the right decisions. Visit the website for an interactive demo.


The TQC Bresle Kit - Chloride Test Kit complies with the ISO 8502-6 and ISO 8502-9 standards that describe the Bresle Method to assess the level of soluble salts using a Bresle patch or Bresle sampler, distilled water and a conductivity gauge. The conductivity is mainly directly proportional to the concentration of dissolved chloride ions in the solution. The kit includes all the necessary equipment to execute a Bresle test that will indicate the contamination of soluble salts on blast-cleaned surfaces prior to coating. Inside the TQC Bresle Kit - Chloride Test Kit is a conductivity gauge used for the assessment of soluble salt ions as chlorides, sulphates and nitrates. Contamination of blast-media The TQC Bresle Kit - Chloride Test Kit is also suitable to determine the contamination of blast-media in use. This important test described in the ISO 11127-6 and ISO 11127-7 standards helps to prevent that the dissolved salts in the recycled abrasive media or water will not re-contaminate the surface being cleaned.


Non-destructive moisture detector for locating damp in laminated plastics such as polyester, and in wood. Equipped with sort rubber electrodes, which absolutely do not damage the surface. Three moisture ranges for detecting moisture in both fresh and salt water. Specially developed for osmosis-control and measuring or moisture before commencing with paint work on yachts.
