Microscopic examination – optical and scanning electron microscopy.
Physical testing - thickness testing, pinhole testing, adhesion testing, and determination of the plane of delamination, hardness testing, and surface roughness (profile) testing.
Chemical analysis - Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy for organic functional group analysis, gas chromatography – mass spectrometry for organic compound separation, identification and quantification, differential scanning calorimetry for melt range and thermal properties, scanning electron microscopy with associated energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy for elemental analysis, and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy for surface elemental analysis.
Accelerated environmental exposure tests - salt spray (fog) tests, humidity tests, and ultraviolet light (QUV).
