Founded in 2006, Southwestern Paint Panels is a leading manufacturer of test panels used to assess the suitability of coatings for paint and corrosion control processes. We have been providing the automotive, aerospace, industrial, manufacturing, corrosion control, and oil and gas industries with high-quality, consistent test coupons for many years with consistent quality and results.
Southwestern Paint Panels is a single-source solutions provider. We have 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. All of our carbon steel test panels are fabricated from ASTM A36 steel, ensuring consistent strength. Our unique manufacturing process ensures that the surface of each test panel is thoroughly cleaned, removing inconsistencies associated with commercial mill steel. Our extensive knowledge and experience in surface preparation delivers a precision surface blast resulting in precise surface profiles.
At Southwestern Paint Panels, we understand the importance paint test panels play in determining the suitability of a certain coating for your processes. Without a consistent test surface, determining if the coating application will withstand real-world situations is impossible. This is why Southwestern Paint Panels manufacture test panels based on quality, reliability, and consistency.
