LABORATORY

The laboratory of GFC Chimica, to date one of the most advanced in Europe for research and development in the field of coating, bases its activity on the characterization and certification of paints and varnishes, with a strong specialization in the sector of building products.

Characterization

Characterization of paints and varnishes. Thanks to 30 years of experience in the field, GFC Chimica is able, thanks to its laboratory, to characterize all paints and varnishes.

Certification of paints and varnishes

the laboratory tests concern both chemical-physical and mechanical tests (abrasion, hardness, adhesion, permeability, colorimetric measurements, accelerated aging, etc.), and chemical analyzes such as: FT-IR infrared spectroscopy, HPLC and GC-MS chromatography, diffractometry X-ray (XRD), porosimetry, etc….

Building products

Since 2001 it boasts the UNI EN ISO 9001 quality certification; UNI EN ISO 14001 environmental certification since 2002. The GFC Chimica laboratory serves over 400 customers in Italy and more than 50 worldwide, providing analysis and certification of products as well as specialist consultancy relating to paints and varnishes.
