Specifications Matter

Laborde also provides consultation services to coating-related manufacturers to aid in the selection and inclusion of coating systems into engineering specifications. This includes system submittals, field testing, and product roll-out.  


Application Support

Lastly, Laborde aids coating manufacturers and facility owners in the identification, selection, and training/qualification of coating applicators.  Certain coating types and manufacturers will only allow their products to be applied by prequalified or licensed applicators. Laborde works with these entities to assure that the systems are properly applied.  Inspection serviced by industry-trained and certified personnel is available.
