Test Panels

Q-Panel brand test panels minimize metal variability in coatings tests.

Panels are available in various sizes and finishes, including bare steel, iron phosphated steel, bare aluminum and chromated aluminum.


Aluminum Panels
Because they are lightweight and rust free, it is often more convenient to use aluminum panels in place of steel. Aluminum panels can be used to replace steel for sales samples, color standards, mailing and even for weathering tests.

Smooth Finish Steel Panels, Type QD, have a smooth, bright finish produced at the steel mill by rolling with smooth ground rolls. Type QD is recommended for testing gloss and color. Type QD panels are NOT recommended for physical properties and corrosion tests.

Dull Matte Finish Steel Panels, Type R, are a dull matte mill finish produced by roughened rolls. This matte finish is representative of general purpose sheet metal applications. Because they are thicker, Type R panels are more rigid than Type QD.

Ground (Polished) Finish (one side) Steel Panels, Type S are the same steel as Type R but one side is polished by grinding it with an abrasive until the mill surface is completely removed Although ground panels are not representative of any specific steel surface normally used for painting, they are widely used because they provide a standardized surface for testing.
