Coating under stress
Using state-of-the-art laboratory technology, our experts ensure that the paints deliver what the color promises. Customers also rely on Wörwag know-how when it comes to quality and cost-effectiveness.
Tests with system
We have the license to test. According to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025, this is the confirmation that we are an accredited laboratory with a flexible scope of services. This makes laboratory tests comparable, reproducible and also internationally recognized.

The high quality standards also apply to all Wörwag products, which are only launched on the market if they pass this independent paint test. This is stressful. But Wörwag goes where it really hurts the paint. With a system. Thoroughly and unsparingly.
Practice is rounded off by theory. Because Wörwag also passes on the knowledge it has gained – in training courses, seminars and customer advice.
Accredited testing laboratory: Member of the standards committee
You demand, we test. In the independent test laboratory, the experts get to the bottom of the surfaces, for example in the pressurized water jet test, the weathering test, as well as the adhesion test or in the bombardment system.
In coating technology, specifications and standards must be met. The laboratory tests according to national (DIN) and international (ISO, ASTM, SAE) standards and to the respective customized specification.
Microscopic examinations support troubleshooting and failure analysis. At Wörwag, test equipment and testing devices are put through their paces. The test laboratory carries out suitability tests, such as interlaboratory tests and device comparisons with its own test equipment. The DakkS has confirmed to Wörwag that the laboratory is accredited for the following test areas: physical-technological, optical and physical-chemical tests on surfaces and coatings of technical products, temperature, humidity, condensation, salt spray, chemical and hydrolysis resistance, and in their combination environmental simulation tests on metallic and non-metallic materials and components.
Our materials testers know the demands
The range of services offered by Wörwag’s testing laboratories is as diverse as the product portfolio: Feasibility studies, fundamental investigations, paint trials or project work on a wide variety of material or surface pretreatment topics. Wörwag helps with questions on the paintability of materials and advises on pretreatment topics and substrate selection. The customer service goes further. For example, it helps determine suitable coating techniques for a particular material or tailor process and procedure optimization. And all this from the introductory phase to ongoing series production.
Wörwag is also happy to provide support for future-oriented measuring and testing methods as well as for research and funding projects.
