Standard Test Substrates
For over 50 years, Q-Panel steel and aluminium test substrates have been recognised as the world standard for a consistent and uniform test surface for paints, plating, adhesives, sealants, rust inhibitors and other coatings. Thousands of labs around the world use millions of our steel and aluminium test panels every year for colour development, weathering exposures, salt spray and corrosion testing, physical properties testing and quality control.
The use of weathering panel substrates allows for consistent and controlled testing, as the substrate provides a known and stable background for evaluating the performance of the product or material. This is particularly important for evaluating changes in the appearance or colour of materials after exposure to environmental conditions, such as light, heat, or moisture.
A wide range of panel sizes and types are available for immediate shipment from stock. Look for the Q-shaped hole. It's our trademark and your assurance of quality.
Q-Panel standard test substrates from Q-Lab are available in various sizes and finishes, fabricated from steel and aluminium.
These test panels are the world standard for a consistent and uniform test surface for paints, plating, adhesives, sealants, rust inhibitors and other coatings.

Corrosion test coupons help a user independently monitor the test conditions in the chamber, by measuring the mass loss of the coupons as the test progresses. This consistency and uniformity is now available through Q-Lab’s CX-series corrosion test coupons.
CX corrosion coupons are designed to meet the stringent requirements specified in modern corrosion test methods, such as GMW14872, GM9540P, SAE J2334, SAE J2721, ASTM B117, ISO 9227, and VDA-233-102.
