Southwestern Paint Panels is a leading manufacturer of test panels used to assess the suitability of coatings for paint and corrosion control processes. Founded in 2006, Southwestern Paint Panels has been providing the automotive, aerospace, industrial, manufacturing, corrosion control, and oil and gas industries with high-quality, consistent test coupons for almost 10 years.
A single-source solutions provider, Southwestern Paint Panels has the capabilities to custom fabricate test and paint panels in a variety of thicknesses, shapes, and sizes based on customer specifications. Our metal test panels are designed to assist in the testing of primers, paints, adhesives, sealants, and corrosive materials for longevity, weathering and salt spray testing, corrosion control, quality and durability testing, and more.
At Southwestern Paint Panels, we understand that the important role paint test panels play in determining the suitability of a certain coating for your processes. Without a consistent test surface, it is not possible to know how coating applications will withstand real-word situations. That’s why we manufacture our test panels with an emphasis on quality, reliability, and consistency. Our unique manufacturing process ensures that the surface of each test panel is thoroughly cleaned, removing the inconsistencies associated with commercial mill steel. Additionally, all of our test panels are fabricated from ASTM A36 steel, ensuring consistent strength.
