What Clients Say About
Stonebridge Coatings Laboratory

Read what actual clients say about our Coating Consulting Services for the Paint Industry.

  • I have worked with Stonebridge for many years, and have found them to be extremely competent at coatings chemistry, skilled in both formulating and analytical services. Stonebridge manages projects well, with good attention to detail, and written reports that are very useful to the person reading them.

    As a coatings consultant and expert witness, I have used Stonebridge’s analytical services numerous times. These have been primarily for failure analysis of coatings, but also for performance testing. I have always been satisfied with their thoroughness, and can count on Stonebridge leader, Ms. Debora Hense, for value added commentary.
