These include coatings and paints for application and curing on site by the end-user.

Test samples of Site Applied Products are either:

1. Prepared by Wqc in our test laboratory
2. Prepared by the client in our laboratory and witnessed by Wqc staff
3. Prepared by the client at a suitable site and witnessed by Wqc staff

Site applied applications require the following:
1. Product data sheet
Cure time and temperature
Mix ratios (if applicable)
Material safety data sheets
5. A maximum of 5 Kg of material
[spray application of a coating] [coated glass panels in curing cabinet]
Full details of sample preparation and curing will be given in the final report, and this information will be included in the listing by the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS) in the Approvals Directory. 

Sample size. For dry products eg. cements, please send a maximum pack size of 5 Kg, and for liquid products eg. epoxy resins, a maximum pack size of 2 Litres. Please ensure that the sample container displays the appropriate hazard waning labels.

Site Vists. Where appropriate Wqc can visit a customers site or any site where the product is being prepared to witness sample preparation.  This can be done as long as the cure conditions for the product can be maintained during transport of the test samples to the laboratory.
