The TQC High Voltage Holiday Detector or porosity test provides accurate detection of pinholes, flaws, inclusions, thin spots and bubbles in a coating. The gauge has been specifically designed to revolutionise high voltage DC testing of coatings, making it safer, easier and more reliable than previously possible.

The high voltage technique can be used to test coatings up to 36 mm thick. This method is ideal for inspecting paint on pipelines, tankbottoms and other protective coatings. Coatings on concrete can also be tested using this method.

The instrument has a lot of unique features. A current limiting to avoid coating damage, , and a safety hand grip without sensitive electronics. Extended ribbing on the handle provides an effective barrier between the high voltage and the user. Accurate sensitivity adjustment allows use on metallised or slightly damp coatings.

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 www.dewcheck.nl for an interactive demo.


The Defelsko Positector 200 measures non-destructively a wide variety of applications using proven ultrasound technology.

Conforms to ASTM D6132 and ISO 2808 All Gauges include probe, precision plastic shims, protective rubber holster with belt clip, couplant, 3 AAA batteries, instructions, nylon carrying case with shoulder strap, Certificate of Calibration traceable to NIST, two (2) year warranty


A guide to assist ship’s staff in the assessment of tank, hold and space coatings of existing ships for the purpose of determining compliance with the Rules and Regulations for the Classification of Ships. The guide handles the definition of the tank coating condition in Good / Fair / Poor classification. It also contains the IACS methodology to divide tanks into a number of smaller “areas under consideration” which can easily be identified. Further are included schematics to help defining area determination, percentage of coatings breakdown for specific ship structures and a comparison of common rust scales. A series of full color pictures of tank coatings in various conditions and a section that describes and shows the hotspots for corrosion and other common defects is also part of the guide. The last section contains sketched indicating common nomenclature and terminology applied to typical structure of major ship types. Year of publication: 2008 Size: 95 x 135 mm Page's: 120
