Laboratory Testing of Cquartz by Milosz

Hi all !

I have got Cquartz sample, so start testing. Thanks to Avi for the sample.
Thanks also for the samples of painted panels for Witman Sp. z o. o. - Authorized Dealer & Service Mercedes-Benz Gdańsk .
Today I started to prepare the surface. Then I put it Cquartz Prepared surfaces.

- clean surface
- the imposition of the upper layer of the sample Cquartz



below the number of paint and what model of car (Mercedes sample)



Tomorrow I lay Cqartz again. Then I will make UV test.

Sample test for corrosive environment. I will measure the corrosion rate:
- Aluminium
- Aluminium + Cquartz
- galvanized steel
- galvanized steel + Cqartz
Compare the results, which provide weight loss. (weight loss due to corrosion). Coating applied to the surface without paint.
Sample preparation
-grinding
-polishing
-clean surface-C2H5OH
-galvanized steel - securing the edge of the "Belzona"
-put it Cquartz samples

Aluminium samples



Galvanized steel sample



A bit of chemical composition.
TiO2 <1.0%
SiO2 <30%
carrier mineral oil> 55%
alkosiloxane <10%
coopolymer Surfactant <1%
Al2O3 <2%
Advanced technology based on silica. Properties of the coating can be adjusted according to your needs. Here we have a well-chosen chemical composition. With the additions we can improve the coating properties. TiO2 - self-cleaning property. Al2O3 - temperature resistance. The rest is responsible for the cohesion and adhesion of the coating. Not only the content of SiO2 is important.

Today I measured the thickness of the coating.

sample B 197 without coat



sample B 197 with coat Cquartz



my note :



the average thickness of the coating Cquartz:
B 197 = 6.2 μm
C = 2.8 μm
CLS C544 = 8.28 μm

After measuring, I once again put on Cquartz sample.

Electrodes prepared to test for corrosion resistance.
-grinding
-polishing
-degreasing and cleaning C2H5OH
-coating electordes

Hi Milosz
i see you are well testing, even better than independent labs.

i would like to clarify one thing though to the DW members here!!
i didnt pay you or have any business relationship with you .
the only connection between us was 10 days ago once you asked for Cquartz sample , which is the only free 10ml that i sent to Milosz.
so people here wont think its kind of a fraud or marketing step by me.

cheers.

Could the TS find out how many microns the Cquartz layer is when its topped once and twice?

The thickness of the coating in my test was measured after the imposition of a single the coating. It did not impose a very thin the coating layers. Also, gently polished. Tomorrow, I measure the thickness of two layers, and after a powerful polishing. Such surface preparation will be better for my tests. It is known that before there is a reaction with lacquer has to take some time. Remember that it is also testing a ceramic lacquers the coating so Cquartz behavior may be different (because of the the coherence of the structure, the pores, of ceramic coating).

I don't have any business with Avi. I've just make a tests fo my BSC Thesis. ( I hope i will be engineer soon )
