Sureshield testing goes beyond just the ordinary

From abrasion to shoe polish and ketchup to color values

Beyond testing for antimicrobial efficacy, Sureshield products undergo extensive testing on many fronts. Depending on the product, application, and end use, Sureshield products may be tested for physical and aesthetic properties.

Using industry standard tests like ASTM, ISO, and JIS, for example, when available, Sureshield products may be tested in-house, by customers, and/ or by third party testing laboratories. Beyond standard testing, custom testing for specific properties is also available.

Sureshield products are tested extensively. Here is a small sampling:

Physical testing
  • Abrasion resistance
  • Cross-hatch adhesion
  • Pencil hardness
  • Salt spray
  • QUV resistance
  • Wash cycles
  • Thermal cycling
  • Humidity resistance
  • Flexibility
  • Impact resistance
  • Solvent resistance
  • Overbaking
  • Resistance to household cleaners
  • Resistance to industrial cleaners
  • Resistance to household items (i.e., shoe polish, lipstick, etc.)
  • Resistance to foodstuffs (i.e., ketchup, mustard, red wine, coffee, etc.)
  • And many more...
Aesthetic testing
  • Gloss level
  • Color values
  • Clarity
